DNC prepares to nominate Biden via ‘virtual roll call’ before convention

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is preparing to nominate its presidential candidate, Joe Biden, through a 'virtual roll call' before the convention. This move is intended to adapt to the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The use of technology will allow delegates from different states to cast their votes remotely in an effort to maintain social distancing measures and protect public health. The virtual roll call is expected to feature short videos from delegates across the country announcing their state's vote totals from locations that symbolize their states. As a historic first, this approach will underscore the importance of adaptability and inclusivity in these unprecedented times. While it has been designed to accommodate current health and safety guidelines, this could potentially introduce a new way of conducting such major events in the future.
