BREAKING: Delaware Democratic Party to immediately postpone all Delegate Selection Votes
On the evening of March 21, Chairman Erik Raser-Schramm issued the following notice announcing the postponement of Delegate Selection votes.
Dear Delaware Democrat,
As the stark realities of the coronavirus outbreak become clearer across our state, we feel a responsibility to revisit our plans regarding our Party’s Delegate Selection process.
Today, the Delaware Democratic Party is announcing that it is immediately suspending our Delegate Selection Caucus process and all corresponding district-level votes.
While the majority of Delaware’s 41 representative districts have already selected their delegates to our State Convention, another dozen districts still need to hold their elections. We recognize that those running to be state delegates are eager for their districts to vote, but we must prioritize public health during these unprecedented times.
As soon as we are able to communicate additional details about the timing and nature of these pending caucus votes, we will communicate them to each of you.
In the meantime, please know that we are doing all we can to be faithful partners in bending the curve of this pandemic, and partnering with our state officials on solutions that keep all Delawareans safe.
Chairman, Delaware Democratic Party
