National Convention Required Paperwork: Delegate and Alternate Statement of Candidacy forms for Congressional District and State (“At-Large”) level National Convention Delegate seats must be received by the Nebraska Democratic Party by end of day, June 1, 2016. Forms are available at: http://nebraskacaucus2016.org/2016DNC_Delegate_Application.pdf You will need to print, complete, and mail two of these forms; one with “District-Level Delegate” checked, and the other with “At-Large Delegate” checked. If the form(s) are not returned by the deadline, you will not be allowed to run for Delegate or Alternate to the National Convention. Even though America is focused on the top job, often the most important legislation is passed on the city, county and state levels. Look at what our own Nebraska Legislature has done this past session with:
LB 10, the winner-take-all bill that would have changed the division of our Electoral College votes; LB 947, the bill that allows those educated in Nebraska colleges the ability to gain license to work in Nebraska, or;
LB 1032, the very conservative bill to expand Medicaid to our most vulnerable citizens.
