LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) — Arkansas’ two dominant political parties have changed the way national convention delegates will be elected amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the Democratic Party of Arkansas will meet electronically while the Republican Party of Arkansas will elect its national delegates at regional and statewide assemblies following social distancing distancing. Democrats are adopting online alternatives due to time constraints. The state’s special convention was originally scheduled for May 30. Republicans hope the crisis is over by the time the party needs to gather for its June 20 meeting.
