Don’t make Carolyn Moon mad, pre-register for Saturday’s Convention http://nuecesdemocrats.org/2016/03/dont-make-carolyn-moon-mad-pre-register-for-saturdays-convention/ Wed, 16 Mar 2016 11:28:12 +0000 http://nuecesdemocrats.org/?p=2443 [...]]]> To become a delegate to the Texas Democratic Convention for either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders you must be elected as a delegate at the Nueces County Democratic Party Convention (NCDPC) on Saturday, March 19.

Don’t make Carolyn Moon mad, please pre-register online at: register.txdemocrats.org before 6pm on Friday, March 18. Doing so will make life easy on the registrars, save time, shorten lines, and most of all it’ll make Carolyn Moon smile.

At the NCDPC, there will be a meeting of attendees from each precinct to select a person(s) to attend the state convention. In order to be elected, you should: recruit neighbors and friends from your precinct to attend and to vote for you, be present at that meeting, and earn the votes of the attendees.

Nueces County will send 139 delegates to the Texas Democratic Convention from Senate District 20 and another 2 from Senate District 18 (Port Aransas).

Nueces County Democratic Party Convention Procedure:

  1. Click here to put the Nueces County Democratic Party Convention on March 19, 2016 on your calendar. Check-in and registration begins at 11am, the convention is gaveled to order at 1pm.
  2. The NCDPC will be held in the auditorium of West Oso Junior High School located at 5202 Bear Lane in Corpus Christi 78415.
  3. Arrive at the NCDPC on March 19, 2016 between 11am and 12:45pm to sign in. Your signature makes you an official attendee.
  4. You will sign in your Presidential Preference. The delegation to the state convention from Nueces County will reflect the percentage support for each presidential candidate. That should result in 98 Hillary delegates from SD-20, 41 Bernie delegates from SD-20, and 2 Hillary delegates from SD-18.
  5. The NCDPC is called to order and opening introductions and ceremonies are held.
  6. The chair will announce committee chairs and members of the permanent committees on Credentials, Nominations for At-Large Delegates, Resolutions, and Rules.
  7. The chair will announce rules regarding resolutions, including location and the time limits on submission (approximately 2pm).
  8. If you have a resolution to present, file it with the Chair who will give it to the Resolutions Committee.
  9. The chair will call for attendees from each precinct or grouped precincts to meet. At this “precinct convention” all the people from your precinct gather.
    1. The precinct chair will call the precinct convention to order. The chair will determine the number of people in attendance from the precinct.
    2. A secretary will be selected to keep minutes of the meeting.
    3. The chair will announce the number of delegates to be elected to the state convention (the precinct is allowed to elect a delegate for each full 175 votes cast in 2014 for Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. 175+ votes equals one delegate; 350+ equals two delegates; 525+ votes equals three delegates, etc.)
    4. If your precinct had less than 175 votes, then your precinct will have been grouped by the county/senate district executive committee with other small precincts to elect the allotted number of delegates based on the total number of votes for Wendy Davis.
    5. The chair will call for self-nominations for those who wish to be candidates for delegate. Nominations cannot be closed until all who want to be considered are nominated.
    6. Each participant may cast a number of votes equal to the number of delegates allocated to such precinct (or grouped precinct) convention. For example, if there are three positions to be filled, each participant may cast three full votes in the following manner:
      1. One vote for each of three candidates;
      2. Two votes for one candidate and one vote for one other candidate: or
      3. Three votes for a single candidate.
    7. Persons receiving the highest number of votes shall be the delegates elected by the group. In the case of a tie vote for either delegate, the delegate shall be determined by lot or chance.
    8. Consensus election: If the attendees can agree by consensus before holding the elections laid out above who they wish to send to the state convention as the delegate(s), then an attendee may make a motion to elect those persons by acclamation.
    9. The chair and secretary will report the results of the selection from the precinct(s) to the nominations committee.
    10. The precinct convention adjourns until the full local convention is called back to order.
  10. Nominations Committee: This committee will meet after gathering all the results from the precinct conventions. If, after the executive committee had allocated delegates to the precincts and grouped precincts, there were delegate places remaining, these places are elected “at-large.” The committee will assess the delegation elected from the precincts and determine the ratio of men and women, ethnic minorities, youth, seniors, and LGBT representation. The nominations committee then will recommend to the full convention the persons to be elected for the requisite number of at-large delegates and alternates. Their recommended list should be used to balance the county’s delegation to the state convention to be representative of the population of the Democrats in the county.If you wish to attend the state convention, and were unsuccessful in being elected from your precinct, you should follow the instructions of your chair on how to request consideration by the Nominations Committee. Seek out and make your wishes known to members of the committee to place you on the at-large delegate list.
  11. The Convention will continue with the report of the Resolutions Committee and action on recommended items by the full convention.
  12. Adjourn. Typically this will be between 4pm and 5pm. But in contentious years some county conventions have lasted til the wee hours.

National Delegate Process and Allocation:

To run to be a National Delegate at July’s Democratic National Convention from your district or to be considered to be an at-large National Delegate, you will need to file a notarized application with the Texas Democratic Party. Under our Rules, you may not file that application before March 21st and the deadline for submittal is May 19, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. The application must be in the office at that time.

  1. Applications will be available on this website Tuesday March 22nd. Check back here to download the application.
  2. File a signed and notarized application to be a national delegate pledged to your presidential choice. Filing will begin on March 21st, 2016 and continue until 5:00 PM on May 19th, 2016. You may also file to be considered a district level delegate, an at-large delegate, or an alternate.
  3. Following the Friday, June 17 senate district caucuses, each presidential candidate caucus within the senate districts shall meet to elect their allocated delegates based on the primary to the national convention. These delegates will be balanced by gender and must reflect our representational goals. Only those delegates who registered for a particular candidate may vote on that candidate’s delegate nominees. Senate District 20 will send 5 delegates to the Democratic National Convention, 2 males for Hillary, 2 females for Hillary, and 1 male for Bernie.
  4. A person who was not elected from their senate district may be considered by the Nominations Committee for one of the 48 at-large national delegates. This committee consists of one representative from each senate district elected at the Friday caucus. The convention chair appoints three additional members. The members of the nominations committee representing each presidential preference will meet on Saturday and select their allocated pledged district delegates, pledged party and elected official delegates, and pledged alternates. These selections will also be used to balance our representational goals.
  5. The Nominations Committee then reports to the entire state convention and the state convention ratifies the delegation.

Present A Resolution At Saturday’s Convention http://nuecesdemocrats.org/2016/03/present-a-resolution-at-saturdays-convention/ Tue, 15 Mar 2016 00:20:07 +0000 http://nuecesdemocrats.org/?p=2438 [...]]]> Any attendee to the Nueces County Democratic Convention may submit a resolution to the convention on any topic they desire. These resolutions may educate and inform the persons developing our Party Platform at the county, state, and national level. Some resolutions will be considered and passed by the delegates at the state convention to give extra emphasis to the topic.

You may submit your resolution to the Chair of the Convention up until one hour after the convention is called to order (2pm on Saturday, March 19). The Chair shall refer it to the Resolutions Committee. The committee will make decisions on which resolutions the convention will consider.

Those resolutions that pass will be sent to the State Convention. Any resolution (or similar resolutions) that pass at least ten county or senate district conventions automatically go to the State Convention Resolutions Committee for consideration, thus if you want something in the state platform it pays to coordinate with multiple counties. All other resolutions are considered by a temporary resolutions committee before the state convention that organizes and prioritizes resolutions for consideration at the state convention.

Print out and fill the template attached below and hand it to your convention chair:
