NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Democrats have published a draft plan to select delegates to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. The delegate selection process is open to all voters who wish to participate as Democrats.
“This plan provides Tennessee Democrats a blueprint for getting involved and making their voice heard in the 2012 presidential election cycle,” said Chip Forrester, Chair of the state party. “We advocate for open, accountable government and we hold ourselves to the same standard so we’re looking for citizen feedback on the plan before the rules are adopted by the state party executive committee.”
The delegate selection plan specifies the methods and timetable for selecting delegates to represent Tennessee Democrats at the national convention to be held in Charlotte, N.C. scheduled for Sept. 3, 2012.
All written public comments received between today and May 30 will be submitted to the Democratic National Committee Rules and Bylaws Committee, the body that must issue final approval to the plan.
The full text of the delegate selection plan is available at www.tndp.org or by calling the Nashville headquarters at 615-327-9779.
