Politics begins at the grassroots level, where you share information and discuss the important issues of the day with your family, friends and neighbors. If you become a Republican Precinct Delegate, you will have the opportunity, and responsibility, to share information and discussion about the Party and its candidates with the fellow residents of your voting precinct.
Elected every even-numbered year in the August primary election, Precinct Delegates play a key role in electing Republicans to every office. As a liaison to your precinct, you will be a key source of information about the issues and concerns in your community, and have the opportunity to build personal relationships with candidates and Party leaders. In addition, Precinct Delegates have the opportunity to attend Party conventions and help select many Party officials and Republican candidates for statewide offices.
As a Precinct Delegate, you will have the opportunity to meet people who share a similar philosophy, and gain in-depth knowledge on current issues, legislation, and policy. This knowledge will help you be in a position to effectively express your views and share your opinions. As a Precinct Delegate, you take an active role in retaining and strengthening the freedoms that make America great, and you make a difference!
