    I'm pretty sure all they will let you do is watch. (If you are a member of the press or a representative of the government you might be able to get a pass.)

    Re: Letter for attending DNC and RNC

    Dear Tarheel, thank you so much for replying my message, specially for correcting my text, i was actually hopping that someone could give me an idea how to start the letter or what to say in the letter, but, again thank you. Well, i have prepared a letter, i would very appreciate it if you could please correct me again or put some sentence to say in the letter

    Dear Rep/Sen … (To whom this may concern)

    On behalf of Party Name, We formally request consideration for getting passes to attend and observe the 2020 National Democratic Convention which we believe will be held on July 13th to 16th, 2020 at Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

    If you grant our request, we will send five delegates from our Party to observe the implementation of the Convention hoping to learn and can adopt it on our Party platform in finding a President and Vice President Candidate at next election. We will bear all the responsibilities, including, but not limited to, financial responsibilities, the accommodation and return air ticket of our all delegations.

    We greatly appreciate your consideration and assistance with this request. (should i put my contact number or email here? or should i just stop here since the contact information should be in the header/footer of the letter)



    Thank you

    Kind regards

    I don't always have time to respond to long posts. I might look at the rest of it later. (Breakfast is on my mind.)

    You made some of the same mistakes you made in the previous post. Please review the amended version. Do it twice! (At least.)

    We don't use chatlish here, so remember to capitalize the pronoun I.

    One more thing. Don't use the word actually unless there is a reason for it. (There isn't one there.) Also, please note the correct spelling of hoping.

    (Thanks, Ems!)
