SALISBURY — Rowan County Democrats will hold their county convention Saturday in the commissioners’ chambers on the second floor of the County Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St. All elected Democratic officials are asked to attend.

Delegate registration begins at 9 a.m. The convention will convene at 10 a.m.

People who signed up at precinct meetings to be delegates should plan to attend the convention. Rowan Democrats, especially precinct chairs, have been asked to share convention information with people who may not have access to email.

The convention is open to the public, regardless of political affiliation. Only the Democratic delegates will be able to vote.

The group will be voting on Rowan County resolutions, giving out awards, honoring Democrats who have passed away and signing up as volunteers for committees.

Meetings of the Rowan Democrats are regularly scheduled for the fourth Thursday of the month, but there will be no meeting this month due to the convention.
