Poll question: 2008 Democratic National Convention (August 25 --> August 28, 2008)
Advertisements [?]
So far, the three (known) cities that have submitted applications to host the 2008 Democratic Convention are:

Denver, Orlando, and Detroit.

According to a site that follows the convention bidding process, the deadline to request for the invitation to bid was on Friday, January 13, 2006. The site doesn't know the final tally.. (Howard Dean hasn't released the info) - but they know about Denver, Orlando and Detroit because they've been fairly vocal. /

Here's one of Denver's plea's:

Convention Question: Out of the three cities that have been made public so far, which would your choice be?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.
