The convention will begin on Friday, March 17, 2017, with Opening Ceremonies, followed by the candidates’ rally and a St. Patrick’s Day Kick-off event. The convention’s official business, including voting, will take place on Saturday, March 18, 2017.

The first round of voting will begin at 12:30pmĀ on Saturday, and results are expected by 4:30pm. Should no one candidate received 50% + 1 of the vote, a second round of voting will begin immediately after.

It is important to know that due to the nature of the delegated voting system, it is difficult to provide exact details as to when the voting may conclude. Should a candidate receive 50% + 1 in the first ballot, there will be no additional voting and the day will conclude quickly. Inversely, there may be multiple rounds of voting, thus extending the day into the late early evening. Delegates should prepare to spend a full day at the convention to ensure they don’t miss the last most critical vote.
