Democrats from across Mississippi gathered Saturday to choose new leaders and representatives to district and state conventions. Individual county conventions were held to elect party leaders for four-year terms. 

Delegates and alternates to upcoming congressional district conventions and the state Democratic convention were also chosen.

"We're trying to get our people energized," said H.C. Johnson, chairman of the Forrest County Democratic Executive Committee. "We want them to become part of the election process in the State of Mississippi and what we want to do is, we're starting at the grass roots and working up," Johnson said.

The Mississippi Democratic Convention will be held in Jackson on June 2.
