As the June 2nd Kentucky State Democratic Convention approaches, the Kentucky Democratic Party is reminding Kentucky Democrats the deadline to file to run as a delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention is Friday, May 4th. Any Kentucky Democrat wishing to run as a delegate to the DNC Convention, being held in Charlotte, NC the week of September 3rd, is required to submit a completed Statement of Candidacy.

“As we move closer to Democratic National Convention, I hope that any Kentucky Democrat interested running and serving as a delegate will take advantage of this important opportunity,” said Dan Logsdon, Chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party.

Kentucky Democrats interested in running as a delegate for the Democratic National Convention should download the “Statement of Candidacy” and return it to the Kentucky Democratic Party by May 4th. Delegates to the DNC Convention will be selected at the June 2nd State Democratic Convention in Louisville.

Any Democrat elected as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention will be responsible for his or her own flight and hotel expenses, though the Kentucky Democratic Party will assist with arrangements.
