The most critical role in the local political process is the Precinct Delegate. For anyone wanting to make a difference by helping to steer the direction of the Republican Party, this is the role to be part of the political process.
What is a Precinct Delegate:
- A Precinct Delegate is an elected position. The Precinct Delegate’s name will appear on the partisan section of the ballot in their precinct. A candidate, their neighbors and any registered voter in their precinct will be able to vote for the candidate to become the Precinct Delegate.
- A Precinct Delegate is elected to serve as a delegate to their party’s county conventions. In this role, they vote to elect the county party’s leadership and to select delegates to go to the state conventions. State convention delegates in turn elect state party leadership, national convention delegates and nominees for offices like Attorney General and Secretary of State.
- Precinct delegates are THE grassroots. They are integral to having an organized, active base of support for the party and its candidates as they are on the front line in their community. Precinct Delegates are the eyes and ears of the party in their neighborhoods. They are the face of the party and the channel for delivering the party’s message at the most local level.
