You Can Still Be a 2024 State Delegate

Even though the primary has passed, you can still be a state delegate to the Indiana Democratic Convention coming up on Saturday, July 13, at the Indiana Convention Center.

As a Hamilton County state delegate, you’ll meet with other delegates from the 5th congressional district and hear from the statewide candidates and other leaders. Later in the day you will have a vote in the nomination of the Democratic candidates for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General. You’ll also vote to adopt the party’s platform.

Other sessions include meetings with various caucuses, such as the Stonewall Democrats and the Indiana Federation of Democratic Women. Lunch will be on your own.

The Friday night before the convention, the annual Hoosier Hospitality Dinner kicks off at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. The speakers are TBA, but it’s always a gala event. Reserve your ticket here.

I’ve attended two state conventions—online in 2020, and in person in 2022. Obviously, the online convention was an anomaly and it was anticlimactic sitting at home while the state party did their very best to make the convention work on Zoom. But in 2022, the feeling of connection and solidarity that came from being in the presence of so many other hardworking and enthusiastic Democrats from around the state buoyed us for the months ahead. I feel like that was my greatest takeaway, and it was well worth my time and effort to be there.

So, will you join us in July? There is just a $50 fee to attend, which is due by June 15. You can email County Chair Jocelyn Vare at to express your interest.
