Looking forward, the November 2018 general election is coming up quickly, after which the 2019 legislative session will begin. The next election-cycle where we will have another Republican Party of Texas convention is in 2020: if you want to attend, or help send good people to attend, there are a series of steps. First is the precinct conventions in March 2020, held immediately after the Republican primary voting is finished, followed by the county convention. Any legal resident who is a registered voter can be a delegate to precinct conventions -- and that is where you elect folks that become delegates to county, who in turn choose delegates that will attend the RPT 2020 convention in Houston and pick the national delegates that will help nominate the 2020 Republican nominee for president (as well as set the national party rules that govern how presidential elections are held).
