Update on Oklahoma Democratic Party National Convention
Oklahoma Democratic Party National Convention Overview
The Oklahoma Democratic Party (ODP) is making plans to send state delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention, July 13-16, in Milwaukee, WI.
Let’s make our votes count! Canadian County’s convention delegates elected in 2019 will meet again for a one-day ODP Delegate Selection Convention on April 4, 2020. We will select 42 delegates and 3 alternates to go to the national convention. Please plan to attend if you are a delegate (or fill out a proxy giving your vote to another delegate):
County officers – Jody Harlan, Chair; Dennis Purifoy, Vice Chair; Shirley Burton, Secretary; Mike Fuller, Affirmative Action Male; and Bobbye Gorden, Affirmative Action Female.
CD3: Chantelle Cory, Sarah Carnes, Ron Cobb, Bruce Fraker, Laurie Hammons, Mark Hammons, Cherry Rain, Linda Shuler, Philip Shuler and Daniel Weber.
CD4: Kandace Howell, Walter Davis, Don Lehman and Mary Rangel-Mattox.
Do you want to be a national delegate? Submit 2 forms to ODP by Feb. 26, 2020: Statement of Candidacy (your info) at https://tinyurl.com/qpu8qj8 and Pledge of Support (which presidential candidate you support) at https://tinyurl.com/vdhp4um. Get more information at https://okdemocrats.org/ when available. Delegates pay for their own travel, hotel and most food.
Important: Any Democrat can run to be a national delegate. (You do not have to be a voting delegate at Oklahoma’s April 4 state convention.)
Canadian County may be selected to host training about the delegate selection process.
