Michigan and Florida Full Delegate Vote Restored
Today, August 24, 2008, in Denver, Colorado, the Democratic Credentials Committee restored full voting power to delegates from Michigan and Florida.
When the Democratic National Convention convenes on August 25, all delegates will be empowered to vote a full vote.
In February 2008, as a form of sanction for the states disegarding the national Democratic Party leadership's instructions not to hold their respective primary dates early, the two states were stripped of their delegate seats at the convention.
In May 2008, the seats were restored with each delegate's vote being equal to a half vote.
This latest action restores each delegate's vote to a full vote.
