The first phase of the 2021 Kentucky Democratic Party Reorganization has occurred with the Precinct Convention in April. Now we move onto the second phase: the election of the County Executive Committee and nominations for delegates to represent Kenton County to the Fourth Congressional District and State Conventions.
In order to nominate or vote for members of your county Executive Committee, you must have been elected to the Precinct Committee. As an elected member, your role in the Kenton County Convention is to nominate and vote for these positions:
You may nominate any registered Democrat in Kenton County to those roles. The number of slots open for each position determine the number of nominations you may make:
If you are new to this process, we understand this may be a lot. Please refer to this video that explains the County Convention process and how to enter your nominations.
You can also reach us at email@example.com if you would like to be put in touch with other elected precinct committee members in your precinct and/or county, or if you have general questions.
Nominations are open now through Monday, May 10. Before you nominate someone, please make sure you have their permission to nominate them, their email address, and their phone number.
We will double-check with all nominees to make sure they agree to serving in the nominated role if elected, and give them an opportunity to submit a written statement of interest prior to the voting. We will make an earnest effort to find and correct contact information if it is entered incorrectly; however, if we cannot get in touch with the nominees due to incorrect or missing contact information, your nomination may be considered invalid.
If you are on the Precinct Committee, the nomination form should have been sent to you via email on April 29th. That email contains the link to the Google Doc Nomination form, which you will need to make nominations. If you do not have that email, please email KentonDems@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and the form will be sent to you again.
The Democratic Party of Kenton County works for the benefit of every citizen regardless of race, religion, sexual identity, disability status or cultural heritage. We will fight for better jobs and fair pay for all; affordable healthcare for everyone; a high-quality, accessible education system; and a better future for our planet through clean energy and sensible environmental policies. We believe that the fight for a better world begins in our neighborhoods, cities, and our own county.
