Online County Convention

We will have an online County Convention on May 3, 2020 at 2:00 PM. The only order of business will be the approval of the 2020 Benton County Party Platform. The platform is a consensus of the views of our local party on the issues facing our voters and our nation. It is part of the basis on which we endorse local candidates. Many people have worked diligently since the beginning of the year, to compile our platform.

In our online meeting, neither “wordsmithing” nor additional platform planks will be in order. Sections can be stricken out if the convention wishes to do so.

When we are closer to the time of the convention, there will be more information available on how to join the online meeting. We will be using the Zoom application for this, so install it and familiarize yourself with it beforehand. If you have question about how to install or use Zoom, please contact the Secretary at secretary@bencodems.org.
