If you decide to run and would like a list of Central Committee members to contact about your candidacy before the meeting, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a list. Please keep in mind that ALL positions are volunteer positions and there is a time commitment. Meetings have quorum requirements and attending the meetings or providing a proxy when you cannot attend are responsibilities that come with the positions.
A central committee’s composition will vary depending on the jurisdiction. Voting members of each central committee meeting on Feb. 6 are the officers elected in 2019, the precinct committee people elected at caucuses in 2020, and certain Democratic elected officials.
If you’re interested in running for positions with the Colorado Democratic Party, the state reorganization meeting will be held March 20, 2021.
