By Staff | Apr 17, 2012

The Democratic Party of Lee County announced Tuesday that statewide county caucuses will be held on Saturday, May 5.

The local caucus will be held at 10051 McGregor Boulevard, Suite 103, Fort Myers, Edwards Building at the Alliance for the Arts on the corner of McGregor Boulevard and Colonial Boulevard.

The first-ever statewide caucuses will kick off the delegate selection process, which will determine who will be part of the Florida delegation that will attend the national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“Florida Democrats are looking forward to the National Convention this summer and are energized heading into 2012,” said Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux in a prepared statement. “The county caucuses are an exciting chance for Democrats to get involved and help rally support for President Obama. Whether you’ve volunteered in the past or are brand new to the party, we urge you to join us on Saturday, May 5, and we hope to see you in Charlotte this summer.”

After being selected at the county level, delegates will proceed to the party’s statewide convention where they will take part in the final phase of the delegate selection process in Tampa, Florida on June 1-3. Those selected at the state convention will attend the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina this summer.
