Delegate Training

The Party exists to facilitate the caucus-convention system so delegates can represent their neighbors in selecting candidates that will protect and promote our platform.  

County Delegates select county party officers and district chairs at the odd-year organizing convention and county elected official candidates at the even-year nominating convention.

A county delegate is selected by their neighbors to represent them.  In return for this focused voting power, each delegate promises to deeply research the candidates to make an informed decision as to which candidate will best live up to the party platform.

This includes reading websites, news articles, watching interviews and attending candidate meetings.  It also involves talking with precinct neighbors about who the best candidate would be based on issues important to party members.

Qualifications needed to become a delegate:

  • be a U.S citizen

  • be 18 years or older by the time of the primary election (in June) or the general election (in November)

  • be a registered voter and live within the precinct of the caucus that you would attend

  • be a registered Republican party member

  • have neighbors who trust you 

Delegates selected to represent their precincts or districts at party conventions have a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of their constituents and the party as a whole. This duty includes attending convention sessions, participating in voting processes, and advocating for positions that align with the party’s platform and priorities.


Delegates should familiarize themselves with the rules and procedures governing party conventions, including credentialing requirements, voting protocols, and debate guidelines. They should uphold the integrity of the convention process by adhering to established rules and respecting the decisions of the majority.
