FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If I am a State Central Committee member, do I need to run as a delegate?
No. SCC members are automatic delegates to the State Convention, BUT you will need to register as an elector if you wish to vote for other delegates.
Why virtual meetings?!
We still need to be mindful of public health concerns. The emergence of the highly transmissible Omicron variant of COVID-19 is still a threat. National and State health experts have predicted that cases of the Omicron variant may peak in mid-February. With this in mind, we have decided to make these events virtual for safety and accessibility.
