Texas Democratic Convention 101

El Paso Convention Center | June 6-8, 2024

What is the Texas Democratic Convention, anyway?

The Texas Democratic Convention is the largest state convention in the country. It typically occurs every two years and serves as a gathering for party members, delegates, elected officials, candidates, and activists from across the state to elect national delegates, discuss party platforms and strategize for upcoming elections.

At the Texas Democratic Convention, attendees participate in workshops, caucus meetings, speeches, and networking opportunities. It is an essential forum for shaping the direction of the Texas Democratic Party and rallying support for Democratic candidates and causes.

Texas remains the battleground of battlegrounds, and firmly holds a spotlight within the 2024 national political arena. This general election cycle will ultimately shape the electoral landscape in Texas for generations to come. And to kick-off our path to November, the Texas Democratic Party is proud to announce the official 2024 Texas Democratic Convention keynote addresses from U.S. Senate Candidate Congressman Colin Allred.

Why is the Texas Democratic Convention held in El Paso?

The location of the Texas Democratic Convention changes bi-annually to showcase each corner of the beautiful Lone Star State, and each location is voted on by the State Executive Democratic Committee.

This year's Texas Democratic Convention will be historic, as it's the first convention held in a border community in over 20 years.
