In gubernatorial years when the State Central Committee chooses to nominate the Democratic Candidates for statewide office in a primary, the twenty (20) members of the State Central Committee representing each congressional district are elected in congressional district conventions. At its December 2016 meeting, the Democratic Party of Virginia State Central Committee voted to nominate its 2017 candidates for governor and other statewide offices in a primary and not to hold a state convention. Central committee members were elected at Congressional District Conventions throughout the Commonwealth during the month of May.
Now our newly elected Central Committee is meeting on June 17th at 10:00 a.m. in the Richmond Marriott to elect its new officers. If you are interested in the rules that govern this process, you can find them here.
