Delegate selection update

I want to bring you up to date on the process for selecting delegates from Lexington to the Sixth Congressional District Democratic Convention in Lexington on May 21 and the State Democratic Convention in Richmond on June 18, which will in turn select delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July.

Lexington has been allotted two delegates. Based on the results of the March 1 primary, one will be pledged to Hillary Clinton and one to Bernie Sanders. If you are interested in being selected as a delegate, you will need to pledge to support either Clinton or Sanders. If there is more than one person seeking to become a delegate for each Democratic candidate for president, we will hold an assembled caucus on Monday April 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Rockbridge Public Library in Lexington. Each participant in the caucus will choose whether to participate in the selection of either the Clinton delegate or the Sanders delegate– again, only if more than one person is seeking to become the delegate for each candidate.

All Democrats in Lexington are eligible to become a delegate or to participate in the April caucus (if required). If you are interested in being one of our delegates, pledged to either Clinton or Sanders, please let me know. The deadline in April 11.

The Sixth Congressional District Democratic Committee will hold a mock caucus and training session beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 19 at the Howard Johnson Inn, 2836 N Lee Hwy, Lexington. If you’d like to participate, please contact me so we can get an idea of how many will be attending.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Gene Zitver, chair
Lexington Democratic Committee
