Important information regarding Congressional Districts for party operations:

Because of the new maps adopted by the General Assembly, but not yet approved by the courts, there needed to be clarification as to how we would conduct business this year at district conventions. The NC Democratic Party Executive Council accepted unanimously two motions. They are:

  1. Presidential electors and national convention delegates will be elected at congressional district conventions held on the congressional district lines adopted by the NC General Assembly in 2011.  In Chatham that means if you were in the 4th or the 2nd Congressional Districts, you will participate in conventions for those districts under the old map.
  2. Members of the Platform and Resolutions Committee, Council of Review, and Credentials Committee will be elected at congressional district conventions based on lines adopted by the NC General Assembly in 2011. After January 1, 2017, should a member of one of these three committees live outside of the district that elected them based upon maps that have been both revised and approved, then the district executive committee must fill the vacant seat.
