The United States is looking at adopting rules that would allow delegates to vote remotely in nominating for the 2020 Presidential race, a party official said.

This is as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that has restricted movement and gathering in the country.

Former vice president Biden is the sole contender on the Democratic side to face Republican Donald Trump in the November 3 presidential vote, but he has yet to formally be nominated.

Biden’s last remaining party rival, Bernie Sanders, endorsed him for president in mid-April, saying it was time to unite to defeat Trump.

The Democratic Party convention to officially nominate Biden, set to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has already been pushed from mid-July to the week of August 17 due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Now a resolution will be submitted to grant the convention committee “maximum flexibility to plan a safe event that guarantees every delegate can accomplish their official business without putting their own health at risk,” a party official told AFP.
