OK-SAFE, Inc. – 2/26/13 There are several GOP county conventions taking place this coming Saturday, March 2, 2013. Several of these counties will be conducting their precinct meetings at the beginning of the meeting. This is when you need to be elected as a delegate; this election process is what allows you to be seated as a delegate with voting rights at the upcoming state convention, set for April 19-20, 2013 in OKC, OK.
The list below may not be a complete list of all the conventions scheduled for this weekend. [Unfortunately, it is still a reality on OK that some county GOP chairmen are not very forthcoming when it comes to meeting information. If your county’s GOP has not already held their convention, and your county is not noted below, we suggest that you call your county chairman and verify when and where the county convention is to take place. County GOP contact sheet here.]
Make sure your voter registration information is current and up to date! Sign all documents (i.e. sign-in sheets, delegate sheets, etc.) with your name as it appears on your voter registration card. This helps to assure that you will be “credentialed” at the conventions. Precinct officers – make sure you keep a copy of the precinct paperwork.
Make sure your county chairman, or whoever is in charge of collecting the precinct packets, follows the rules for submitting delegate information to the state GOP headquarters.
