RALEIGH — The North Carolina Democratic Party announced it would hold its state convention virtually on June 6.

NCDP executive director Meredith Cuomo said, “While we won’t be gathering in person for this year’s state convention, moving to a digital platform gives us a chance to rethink our traditional format and find innovative ways to energize our members as we look toward November.”

The North Carolina Republican Party is moving the date of its state convention to July 9-12. The convention had been previously scheduled for this week. The convention is still expected to take place in Greenville.

NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley said, “The North Carolina Republican Party is firmly committed to hosting our convention, holding our elections and hearing from a great roster of speakers. We would like to thank the Greenville Convention Center, our host hotels and vendors for continuing to work with us as we are forced to adapt to an evolving timeline for reopening the state and allowing large events to take place.”
