Jackson County Democrats will gather throughout the county on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 10 A.M. to elect delegates to the Jackson County Democratic convention to be held March 10 and to find out about 2012 candidates and campaign activities. Young Democrats are welcome and encouraged to get involved. Members of the county executive committee come from the convention attendees.
