To become a candidate, individuals must file a Statement Of Candidacy and a Pledge of Support to the Tennessee Democratic Party no later than noon, March 1. Forms are available at www.tndp.org or at their office located at 1900 Church Street, Suite 203, Nashville, TN 37203 or may be requested via phone at 327-9779.
This will be the first step for delegates from the 5th and 6th Districts elected on this date. There will be a total of seven men and seven women for the 6th District and 17 men and 18 women from the 5th District.
To vote for candidates due to Wilson County still having two congressional districts, for this vote you will need to bring your voters registration card to determine your correct district. Officials will be using the old districts not the newly redrawn districts. You will also have to complete a pledge of support and you will have to have voted in the March 6, 2012 Democratic Primary. Due to these things you are asked to arrive at least 1 hour prior to the convention to allow time for these procedures to be met.
For more information, call 444-3838 or contact the Tennessee Democratic Party at 327-9779.
