19 March 2004 update: The date of the Territorial Convention was moved from 20 March to 24 April 2004.
Democratic Party Chairman Willy Flores stepped down 24 February 2004 after he was named as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in a scheme to fraudently obtain money from the Bank of Guam. Upon Flores resignation, Becky Lujan became acting chairperson. Mike Philips was elected to fill the Chairman postion at the 24 April 2004 Convention.
26 April 2004 update: Senator John Kerry received 77% of the vote at the Territorial Convention. Since no other preferences have reached the 15% threshold as prescribed by the Guam Delegate Selection Plan, all pledged delegates are awarded to Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts.
Saturday 24 April 2004: A Territorial Convention made up of all interested voters meets to choose 6 of Guam's 11 delegates to the Democratic National Convention (together representing 3 of Guam's 5 delegate votes at the National Convention).
