The Democratic Party of Hawaii Precinct Meetings are happening statewide on Wednesday. The party representative process will choose precinct and district officers and delegates to county and state conventions.
Kauai has allotments for 65 democratic convention delegates.
These officers will have the ability to influence many issues, including resolutions, platforms, and environment.
Going to your precinct meeting and becoming a precinct officer and/or convention delegate is essential to participate in voting, debating, and decision making for county and state conventions, as well as party platforms, according to a press release.
“We hope that people will come out and elect their officers for the areas they live in,” said Democrat Janice Bond. “If they’re not Democratic party members, they can register that night.”
All members can run for district chair, observe the new District Council electing leaders, and verify the recorded results.
To be elected, nominate yourself or have a friend nominate you. You can also nominate friends and people you admire or trust to lead and represent the party and organize its collective work.
