We are especially pleased to announce that we are convening the delegates of the several states for the purpose of the possible nomination of a presidential ticket. This is a significant accomplishment for a party as young as we are.
Due to the health crisis that we are all engaged in this will be done virtually online. You are invited to observe this convention on YouTube. Shortly after 3:30 PM EDT on April 25th you will receive an email with the live link.
In accordance with our by-laws, the National Committee has called this convention and delegated a Convention Committee to develop the rules. After speeches and presentation of the candidates, following a motion to nominate, each state delegate present will cast a yea or nay vote on the motion. A majority of 50% plus one will carry the motion to nominate. Each state affiliate will cast one vote while protocol state affiliates will cast two, as per the by-laws.
Acclaimed reformer and author Greg Orman will deliver the keynote.
The national ticket being presented is:
