The Nevada Revised Statutes require that the major political parties hold precinct meetings and a convention every two years. In a Presidential Election year, we have a Caucus where a presidential preference vote for our choice for the U.S Presidential nominee for our party. This year, because we have an incumbent Republican President, we will only conduct our precinct meetings and have a County Convention.
Our Washoe County precinct meetings will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at various local schools. Check in begins at 8:30 a.m. with a photo ID. Precinct meetings begin at 9:00 a.m. and end no later than 10:30 a.m. You will be able to find the location of your precinct meeting by going to www.washoegop.org. At the precinct meeting, members of each precinct will nominate members to the Washoe County Republican Central Committee, elect Delegates and Alternates to the County Convention and discuss what they would like to see on the Republican platform for the County, State and National Republican Party.
The Washoe County Republican Central Committee manages the business of the local Republican Party. The membership is derived from the precincts. The newly nominated Central Committee members will be elected at the County Convention.
The members elected from the precincts are involved in the election process, support and work for Republican candidates, vote on internal changes to the Central Committee and are the sole source of eligibility to be on the Nevada Republican State Central Committee. Since this is a new election cycle for the two-year term of the County Central Committee, attend your precinct meeting and have a voice in the grass roots of your party’s business.
The Washoe County Republican Convention will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at the Peppermill Hotel Casino. Cost to attend is $80 with lunch included for the Delegates and Alternates elected at their precinct meeting and any guests who would like to attend.
You must attend your precinct meeting to be elected as a delegate or alternate. You must attend the Washoe County Republican Convention to be elected to the State Convention and you must attend the Nevada State Republican Convention to be elected to the Republican National Convention.
The Nevada Republican State Convention will be held Friday, May 15 and Saturday, May 16 in Northern Nevada.
The Republican National Convention will be held Monday, August 24 through Thursday, August 27 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
