Convention business includes picking those who will serve as Democratic National Convention delegates and on the party’s slate of presidential electors.

The state Republican Party had planned to hold its convention in Greenville this weekend, but it’s been pushed back to July.

Both state parties have been holding local activities online in recent weeks.
