NOTICE OF PRECINCTS/ COUNTY CONVENTION
Party conventions are held every two years. There are 3 levels of conventions this year; precinct, county/senate district, and state. Attendees at each level pass resolutions and elect delegates to the next level convention. These resolutions and delegates help shape the party platform and its direction regarding public policy. To be a delegate, you must affiliate with the Republican Party (by voting in the Republican Primary or by taking an oath of affiliation). Once affiliated you cannot vote or participate in another party’s primary or convention process for the remainder of the voting year.
If you plan to attend your Republican precinct convention, make sure you vote in the Republican Primary Election.
The convention is usually called to order by the precinct chair. If the precinct chair is not present, any participant may begin the meeting. There is no minimum number of people who must be present to hold a precinct convention. If you are the only person present, you can still hold the precinct convention. A precinct convention packet may be available, or you may use the forms provided on this page.
Participants at the precinct convention first elect permanent convention officers, usually a convention chair and secretary. They then elect delegates and alternates to the county/SD convention. Finally, they consider and vote on any resolutions presented by a participant.
To be valid, all completed paperwork must be submitted to the county Republican party two to three days after the precinct convention is held.
