Guest Speaker: Dr. Keith Rothra
TOPIC: The Power of the Precinct Convention and duties of a Precinct Chair & Poll Watcher
Dr. Rothra, former Gregg County Chairman and author of Did you Know, will provide training on how to become involved in the Precinct Convention process. We will also conduct a mock Precinct Convention during the meeting.
Precinct Conventions are held the night of each primary election day.
PURPOSE OF PRECINCT CONVENTION:
- Delegates and Alternates are nominated and elected to represent the Precinct at the County or SD Convention.
- Platform Resolutions are proposed and those adopted are forwarded to the County Convention.
- Many have said that as few as 2-3 people participate in their Precinct Conventions! These people have the power to propose and vote on resolutions which are then sent to the County Convention. And then if passed at the County Convention will go to the State Convention. These resolutions, if passed at the State Convention, will become a part of the Republican platform that we must all abide by.
Do YOU want to give this much power to only a few people who may not share your conservative values?
