GET ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN THE NEBRASKA REPUBLICAN PARTY

Now, more than ever is a pivotal time in our nation’s history for personal political empowerment — to get involved and engaged with your state and county parties.

Next spring and summer, you have an opportunity to elect patriots to positions in your County and State parties. It starts with simply volunteering to be part of your local Legislative District (LD) Precinct Committee by registering as a Delegate to your county convention.

What is a Delegate?

  • A voting member at County Conventions.
     

  • Eligible to run as State Central Committeeman/woman (2-year term).
     

  • Eligible to run as a State Convention Delegate.

How do I become a Delegate?

  • You must be a registered Republican.
     

  • You must complete and notarize a delegate registration form by March 1, 2024, and return it to your Election Commissioner or County Clerk. Once the form is turned in you will be eligible to participate as a voting member at even-year County Conventions and the next odd-year County Convention.
     

  • This process must be done every 2 years to be an active delegate.

What are the responsibilities of a Delegate?

  • At a basic level, delegates are voting members at even-year and odd-year County Convention. County Conventions are the principal decision-making group in your county party. They are also eligible to run as a State Convention delegate, and/or a State Central Committeeman/woman.
     

  • Beyond that, delegates are the network of individuals in the county whom we can look to for leadership within their precinct or neighborhood. Former delegates have been engaged with being point people for helping local candidates with their campaigns and/or running for a political office themselves. Obviously, the involvement of delegates varies based upon their individual choices, but the more involved delegates are, the stronger our party and candidates will be in our Counties and across our State.

Presidential Election National Convention

National Convention Delegates:

  • Individuals wishing to go to the Presidential National Convention will have to file a National Delegate Registration Form with the Nebraska Secretary of State prior to the State Convention expressing their interest to be a National Delegate.
     

  • Individuals wishing to go to the National Convention in 2024 will also have to notify the Secretary of State & NEGOP Headquarters as to which Presidential candidate they wish to support, or they may elect to support the winner of the Nebraska Republican Presidential Primary. This is done by filling out the National Delegate Registration Form.
     

  • Only those delegates that are bound to the winner of the Nebraska primary will be eligible to be elected to the National Convention during the State Convention (we have a winner-take-all delegate allocation system).
     

  • Only individuals that are elected to the County and State Conventions are eligible to be elected as Delegates to the Republican National Convention.
