The Kendall County Democratic Party is committed to turning Texas blue — particularly, to the very real opportunity to flip the Texas House back to Democratic control after 20 years — and electing Democratic candidates to the US House of Representatives and all statewide offices, from Governor on down. To do this, we commit to full participation in all the Democratic primaries and conventions that comprise our nominating process — and we need your participation as well.

Kendall County Democratic Convention
The Kendall County Democratic Convention will happen in mid-June 2022 (several weeks after any needed runoff elections.) The time, date, and location of the Convention will be widely publicized on our website, social media, local media, and at primary voting locations.
Per the rules of the Texas Democratic Party, “any qualified Democratic voter who will be 18 years of age or older on the date in November of the General Election and who resides in the county and who has voted in the Democratic Primary…or who signs an oath of affiliation to the Democratic Party and has not voted in another party’s primary…shall be eligible to attend” and vote at the County Convention. Note that this means if you cast a “protest vote” in the Republican Primary, you may *not* attend or vote at the County Democratic Convention.
At this event, we discuss Party business, adopt Party resolutions, and select 12-15 delegates to send to the Texas Democratic Convention (see next item). For more information, email the KCDP Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. More convention details will be posted here as they become available.
