The 2020 Democratic National Convention begins on Monday night and due to coronavirus it won't look like conventions of the past.

Originally, the convention was going to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and it would have looked like any other convention. Delegates in the audience, speakers and performances during the day, then at night the big name speakers would come out and eventually you'd see balloons dropping from the ceiling.

However, due to coronavirus, the entire convention will be virtual with speakers delivering their speeches from different locations across the United States according to CNN.

The convention's main hubs will be stages in New York, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and in Biden's home of Wilmington, Delaware -- where he and his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, will deliver their speeches later in the week.
Emcees primarily broadcasting from Los Angeles will lead each night's two-hour programs, while speakers deliver their remarks from historic locations around the country. Meanwhile, a production truck in Wilmington will monitor hundreds of live feeds from across the country -- part of an effort to build excitement and add moments of reaction to the broadcasts.
If Democrats can keep audiences tuned in and engaged, it could change the way political conventions are held moving forward.
Coverage of the convention will be Monday thru Thursday from 8-10 p.m. CT and on Monday the featured speakers will be Michelle Obama, Bernie Sanders, and former Republican Governor John Kasich.
Will you be watching the convention this week? Let us know in the poll below.
