Welcome to the 2020 Park County Convention

Park County Democratic Delegate Selection

Every four years, following the Primary Election ( this year-June 2, 2020), we as citizens and registered Democrats have an opportunity and an important responsibility to select delegates for the presidential candidates and represent Park County at the Montana Delegate Selection Convention. Learn more about how Montana Democrats can participate in the delegate selection process.


This year, for the first time and in light of COVID-19, the Park County Democratic Delegate Selection Convention will be held online via Zoom.  We will hold this convention on:


Wednesday, June 3 at 5:00 pm

In 2020, the presidential candidates on the Montana Primary Ballot are:



Any presidential candidate who receives at least 15% of the vote in Park County on June 2, 2020, will receive delegates at the Park County Convention and at the Montana Democratic Delegate Selection Convention to be held on June 6, 2020.


This is an opportunity to participate in a critical political process, and you’re invited!

There is a lot to cover for this convention, so please review the following information and contact the PCDCC, if you have any questions. pcdemocrats@itstriangle.com.

Eligibility and Process

Any registered voter in Park County who publicly declares to be a Democrat may participate in this convention. Check your voter registration online to confirm your status is active in Park County.



To publicly declare as a Democrat, you must complete the Democratic Affirmation Statement .

 The completed form must be received no later than 1:00 pm on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.


Once we receive your completed Democratic Affirmation Statement, you will receive an email with instructions for joining the convention via Zoom. The convention is on June 3, 2020 at 5:00 pm, but we ask all participants to join the Zoom meeting starting at 4:30 pm. This will ensure a prompt and efficient start time.



If you are new to using Zoom, we recommend you review the Zoom support documentation. You can participate in the Zoom meeting online or by phone.


Convention Details

This will be the first time a county convention will be held online. We will do the best we can in organizing and executing this convention and appreciate your patience and understanding as we proceed.


With that in mind, please remember technology does not always work the way we expect.  


Summary:


Once we receive your completed Democratic Affirmation Statement, we will email you the Zoom meeting information for the convention.


Check-in for the convention will begin at 4:30 pm on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.

Participants will then choose delegates and alternates to represent their presidential candidate at the state convention. Park County is allotted a total of four delegates, who will be apportioned according to their vote totals in the June 2 primary.

United By a Common Goal

The Park County Democratic Central Committee works with county, state, and the national Democratic Committees to uphold the doctrines of the U.S. Constitution. We seek to ensure equality for all, including access to education and health care; dependable employment with a living wage; privacy of persons, property, and communications; and our right to participate in the democratic process. We work cooperatively within our communities to improve the lives of our citizens, our environment, and our world.

We constantly encourage citizens to engage in the democratic process, to become informed voters—and to vote. Currently, we also participate in twice yearly Adopt-a-Highway clean ups as well as in the annual Spring Trail Clean Up program.

We always welcome new members!
