CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Democratic National Convention Committee announced that the public can sign up for the opportunity to attend President Obama and Vice President Biden’s acceptance speeches for the Democratic Party’s nomination at Bank of America Stadium on September 6th.
Community credentials will allow Americans to participate in the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte and be there in person to witness history as President Obama gives his last convention speech as a candidate for president.
“We are thrilled to invite North Carolinians and Americans from across the country to witness the Vice President and President Obama accept the Democratic Party’s nomination on the final night of the convention,” said 2012 Democratic Convention Chair, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
“The 2012 Democratic National convention will define the election as a choice between two very different paths for our nation. The President will lay out his vision for an economy built to last: that if you work hard and act responsibly, you should be able to find and keep a good job with decent wages and good benefits, retire securely and leave your kids a little better off. And you can be there to hear it.”
Just last month, Obama for America in North Carolina announced the opportunity to receive community credentials through the 9-3-1 campaign which asks people to commit nine hours of time over three shifts to receive one guaranteed community credential for the acceptance speeches.
This effort has already recruited thousands of North Carolinians and will continue over the next several weeks.
