Delegates and Alternates to the Department Convention must be certified to the Department Headquarters not less than 10 days prior to the Department Convention regardless of whether their registration fee is paid in advance or not. In order to vote, each and every Post in the Department must comply with this requirement and be sure to certify their Department Convention Delegates and Alternates.

Also, you may only list as many alternates as you are authorized delegates.
