The Democratic Party announced Monday that it will hold its state convention in Clark County on June 25 and 26. The event, which is expected to draw as many as 2,100, will begin with caucus meetings and a banquet Friday evening at the Hilton Vancouver Washington. It will continue Saturday with a congressional breakfast and the convention itself at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds.
The Repubs are doing their convention in Vancouver earlier in June, with their entire event at the Hilton.
One logistical planning note for folks who usually go to the Democratic convention: the Hilton is in downtown Vancouver, while the fairgrounds is about 8 miles north on I-5, closer to Ridgefield. Hopefully there will be some kind of shuttle service for those who may choose to take Amtrak to Vancouver. Plenty of time before next June of course.
