Kentucky Democratic Party Delays Reorganization Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

The Kentucky Democratic Party is suspending its planned 2020 reorganization efforts until further notice due to recommendations from Gov. Andy Beshear and the CDC.

The reorganization effort, which typically takes place every four years during a presidential election, was set to start this Saturday, March 21 with Precinct Conventions. Both the precinct conventions and the county/legislative district conventions on April 18 are suspended.The process helps build infrastructure in all 120 Kentucky counties and elects members to the governing body of the party, the State Central Executive Committee.

The suspension was approved unanimously by the party’s State Central Executive Committee on Saturday. It does not currently affect the process to elect delegates to the Democratic National Convention, scheduled to be held this summer.
