Barry County delegate selection to be held in Cassville

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

The Barry County Democratic Committee will host a county-wide mass meeting on April 6 at the Barry County Courthouse, located at 700 Main St., starting at 7:30 p.m.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Primary voters will caucus to be elected as Presidential delegates to the Congressional District and State Democratic Conventions.

Barry County Democrats will elect delegates according to the results of the Presidential Preference Election on March 10. Voters are encouraged to participate in caucusing to select the delegates for their preferred candidate. These delegates will be responsible for selecting the Congressional Level and State Level Presidential Electors that will cast their vote for President Nominee at the 2020 Democratic National Convention (DNC).

Participation is open to anyone who is registered to vote in Barry County and who participates in the March 10th Presidential Preference Primary Election. For those interested in becoming DNC Electors, participation in the Democratic 29th Congressional District Convention (April 30 in Springfield) and the Missouri Democratic State Convention (June 20 in Kansas City), is required as well.

“This is an exciting and tense year,” said Maella Blalock, Chairperson of the Barry County Democratic Committee. “I am hopeful that we will have positive energy based on the excellent Democratic candidates running this year. As a newcomer, I want to provide an open and accessible meeting for individuals wishing to actively participate,” 

The meeting will be ADA compliant.
