Yellowstone County Convention
Join us for our annual county convention! This event is instead of the central committee meeting in May. This year’s convention will be in-person only and open to all Democratic party members. An election will be held for members to the executive board and review and/or revise the bylaws and policies of the YCDCC.
Our Central Committee is the governing body of the County Democratic Party as defined in the Montana Government Code and Elections Code. It is comprised of local Democrats elected by voters in each County Precinct during Presidential Election years, as well as partisan-level Democratic elected officials and nominees. This group conducts the County Party’s general business, approves its budget, coordinates Democratic campaign activity, and endorses candidates for local offices.
Nominations for Executive Board Members and Precinct Committeemen and Committeewomen must be made and seconded by a voting member (that is, current executive board members and precinct captains).
To qualify as a nominee, it is not necessary to be a voting member. Nominees will be listed on a visible board in the order in which they are nominated.
Nominators for Executive Board positions will have one minute to speak and candidates will have two minutes. There will be no nominating speeches for Committeemen and Committeewomen, but candidates in contested precinct races will have one minute to speak to their candidacy.
Candidates do not need to be present, but must have a designee to accept the nomination and speak on the candidate’s behalf. The presiding Chairperson shall conduct the voting and appoint ballot counters as needed. A nominee may have an observer of the counting.
All newly elected Executive Board members and Precinct Committeemen and Committeewomen shall assume office at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the YCDCC.
How to get to the BEA Meeting Room: The entrance is in the back of the building at 510 N 29th St, Billings, MT 59101 in the alleyway behind the Lincoln Center. Parking on the corner of 30th & 6th is available with a direct path to the entrance.
