Democrats all over Georgia have begun the process of selecting delegates to the Democratic National Convention which will be held September 3-6, 2012. Of the 124 delegates from Georgia , the 10thCongressional District will send five – three men and two women.
“It’s going to be an incredibly exciting four days just up the road in Charlotte, NC, ending with President Obama’s acceptance speech,” said Patsy Harris, chairman of the 10th Congressional District for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “We welcome all Democrats to take this opportunity of representing the district in September.”
Each candidate for convention delegate must be at least 17½ years old, a registered voter in District 10, and a Democrat. Anyone who would like to learn more about the process is invited to attend one of three training sessions in the district later this month. Forms and further details will be distributed at that time.
