WCDP Convention

Wake Dems County Convention – March 15 & 16, 2024

 The annual County Convention is one of the most important events for the Wake County Democratic Party. This year, in an effort to streamline our work, we sought and received a dispensation from the NCDP Chair to break our convention into two separate sessions based on survey feedback from County Executive Committee members.

  • Session 01 – Friday, March 15, 6:30-8pm: Procedural
  • Session 02 – Saturday, March 16, beginning at 10:30am: Business per the NCDP Plan of Organization for Even Years

For Session 01, elected precinct delegates will consider and approve

  • Convention Agenda
  • Convention Special Rules
  • 2023 Convention Minutes

For Session 02, elected precinct delegates will gather to do the following

  • Elect Wake Dems Executive Officer vacancy replacements
  • Elect delegates to Congressional District Conventions for Districts 02 and 13 (2022 “old” maps) and the NCDP State Convention
  • Senate District 18 Executive Committee Representatives, and
  • Discuss and vote on Resolutions that were submitted during precinct organizing

Registration for delegates, non-voting observers, and candidate information will be posted here. Note that proxies are not allowed at this meeting and observers must be registered Democrats living in Wake County.
