COVID Disrupts Election Traditions

( – On Tuesday, Democrats announced the summer convention to nominate a presidential candidate may be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The DNC convention, which concludes the primary season and where a presidential candidate is formally nominated, was originally scheduled for July 13-16 in Milwaukee.

On Thursday, the DNC announced they were postponing the event until August 17th. Typically, thousands of partly loyalists and state delegates gather at each party’s convention.

On Tuesday night, presumptive Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden said he’s not sure the convention will proceed as planned. He said whether it goes forward or not should be based on what medical experts and scientists recommend. Furthermore, Biden stated that there’s no way to tell how the COVID-19 crisis will impact society in July, so there’s still plenty of time to decide.

The new date for the DNC is just one week before the Republican Party’s convention. President Trump has said there’s “no way” he’ll cancel the Republican National Convention which is taking place on August 24-27 in Charlotte, NC.
