The Goliad County Democratic Party will hold its county convention at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Depot, 205 S. Market St.
The convention is open to any qualified voter who signs an oath of affiliation with the Democratic Party.
The purpose of the county convention is to elect delegates to the Texas Democratic Party Convention set for June 7-8 in Houston. In addition, delegates at the county convention will develop resolutions to be presented at the state convention.
Because of the changes to the election schedule, the county convention will be held before the May 29 Democratic primary.
The Goliad County Democratic Party will host a Candidate Forum at Branch Nature Park near downtown Goliad at noon Sunday.
In addition to the local Democratic Party candidates, many regional candidates will participate. Hot dogs and soft drinks will be provided.
