The Idaho GOP State Convention is June 22nd, but the county and district conventions that will select state delegates are happening next week, between May 23 and May 26.
We need hundreds of Ron Paul supporters to serve as delegates to the State Convention. The basic way to become a delegate is to have a precinct committeeman nominate you, then you must be voted on by all other pc’s at one of the county or district conventions. Each county and each district will hold a convention, and you can become a delegate through either one. The full list of conventions is listed here:
Anyone can be nominated to become a delegate, so long as you live in the area you are running in. You don’t have to be a PC to run.
I will be helping to try and coordinate our delegates in Ada and Canyon County. But I could definitely use some well-organized people to help me.
Remember, these delegate battles will be tough, and potentially not everyone who wants to be a delegate will win a seat.
For Ada County, if you would like to be considered, the first step is to send an email to the county party secretary. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and say, “I would like to be a delegate to the state convention,” and include all your contact info. Then forward that email to Idahoans4Liberty@gmail.com. Please submit your name even if you are only like 20% sure you could make it to the convention. In the email to ID4L, let us know if you are committed to attending, or if you are interested but not guaranteed to attend.
We will organize our slate of delegates and will give your names to our precinct candidates, who will have the ability to nominate you at the conventions.
The process will be the same for Canyon County, but I need to track down their secretary’s email. You can still send your info to Idahoans4Liberty@gmail.com.
Remember, it costs either $50 or $75 to attend (depending on what county you live in) and you will be responsible for your own travel arrangements. but we will help coordinate to keep costs down.
So please submit your name immediately!
