    New Process due to Public Health Emergency. As a result of the current Covid-19 virus public health emergency, it is not possible for the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) and the Eleventh Congressional District Democratic Committee (11CDDC) to implement a Convention in an in-person environment. The 11CDDC is therefore opting to hold this process virtually in a manner similar to its 2020 National Delegate Selection Convention, and is committed to implementing a fair and open process for reorganization, the selection of members, and conducting other necessary party business.


    Participating In The Convention

    Participation in the Eleventh District Democratic Convention is open to all registered voters who wish to participate as Democrats. All meetings shall be open to all members of the Democratic Party regardless of race, sex, age, color, creed, national origin, religion, ethnic or gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, or disability, and all meetings shall be publicized fully.
