2017 CD 6 Call to Caucus

This page describes the process for reorganizing the district committee of the Democratic Party of Virginia (for Virginia’s 6th Congressional district). Please note that the members of each district committee comprise the state Central Committee, and the chairs of the Congressional District committees form the state steering committee. These are important positions, and it is important that the process for electing those positions be open and democratic. To facilitate that, it is important that Roanoke City have a full delegation to the district convention, including 27 delegates and 3 alternates. You must file to be a delegate for the caucus. Note that the prefiling form, and the call to the district convention are linked below.  The deadline to prefile as a district convention delegate is April 24.
