    The Democratic National Convention kicked off on 17 August in a virtual format to formally pick the party's nominees for president and vice president in the 2020 US election.

    The convention is scheduled to wrap up on Thursday when former Vice President Biden is expected to accept the nomination and address the nation from his home in Delaware.

    Originally planned for Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the event is now mostly digital on each of the four nights due to concerns over the coronavirus.
