After the elections. the newly elected delegation will meet as a group to:
- Decide on amendments (if any) to the proposed Platform and Rules
- Decide on resolutions (if any) to be submitted
- Vote on Credentials, Rules, and Platform
- Elect Committee members from their number
To increase participation opportunities and focus debate, each delegation will be limited in the number of resolutions and amendments that it can submit on its own to:
- Two resolutions per district
- One platform or rules amendment per delegate
For example, since our delegation has 26 delegates, we will be able to submit two resolutions and propose 26 platform or rules amendments.
