(MADISON, WI) — The Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s Administrative Committee voted last night in an emergency meeting to approve multiple changes to the party’s annual convention on June 12 and 13. The changes are a part of continued efforts by the party to adapt to the increasing threat of COVID-19.

The admin committee voted to make the following changes:

  • Cancel all Congressional District conventions

  • Limit state convention to only Friday June 12

  • Authorize the DPW Chair to determine no later than May 1 whether to hold an in-person or virtual State Convention

  • Limit the business of State Convention to include only limited speeches and reports and the election of DNC members

Additionally, the party has closed all of its offices statewide, including county party offices.
