The Republican National Convention is operating at a limited capacity out of Charlotte, N.C., from Aug. 24 to 27, where a portion of delegates will still show up in-person to cast their votes. 

Charlotte was the original location for the convention before Trump its relocation in Jacksonville, Fla., due to disagreements about coronavirus restrictions. In July, as coronavirus continued to rage in Florida, Trump canceled the Jacksonville portion.
