The Democrats also said the convention will be a day shorter this time around. It will be held over three days instead of four.
Scheduled for the week of September 3, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Labor Day will instead be designated as a day to celebrate the Carolinas, Virginia, and the South at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
"We wanted to find a way to truly make this convention different than any other in history. We want this convention to be about more than just the pageantry and speeches you see on television. This is about engaging Americans in a meaningful way," said Schultz in a statement.
The Republicans will hold their convention the week of August 27 in Tampa.
