From the very beginning of this pandemic, Democrats have put the health and safety of the American people first and early on recognized the need to adjust our plans to ensure a responsible and safe convention. In order to best protect our host community of Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin, Democrats are following the advice of public health experts and limiting the in-person presence of the convention to only those necessary to orchestrate the event. 

No. In light of our nation’s continued challenges with the pandemic, we are focused on ensuring that everyone involved with the convention can participate without risk to personal or public health. After consulting with public health officials about the COVID-19 pandemic, convention organizers decided that speakers should not travel to Milwaukee and made the determination months ago that delegates should plan to conduct their official convention business remotely.

Protecting the health and safety of everyone involved with the convention is driving every decision we make. In addition to continued collaboration with local, state and federal public health officials, nationally-renowned epidemiologists and infectious disease experts Dr. W. Ian Lipkin and Dr. Larry Brilliant are advising on efforts to protect the health and safety of everyone involved with convention and the people of Wisconsin.

We’re committed to making sure every delegate can accomplish their official business without putting their health at risk. A process has been developed to ensure that all delegates can cast their nominating votes remotely during the convention, and DNC standing committees and caucus and council meetings will take place virtually in the weeks leading up to August 17.
