At the convention we’ll be electing the DE GOP’s Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary.
To become a delegate or alternate delegate (both require attendance) for Kent County you must be registered as Republican in Kent. You'll need to reach out to your Representative District (RD) Chair by Wednesday, April 3rd with your name, phone number, email, and the address connected to your voter registration.
If you pay online, you'll be able to register online through the state GOP. Please contact your RD Chair with the information above even if you register online, this will allow them to reach out to you if needed and help ensure they have an accurate count of how many people from their RD will attend. You can find contact information for your RD Chair by clicking the menu option "Representative Districts" and selecting your district. If you do not know your RD, please email KentCountyRepublicans@gmail.com with the information mentioned above and we will get you in touch with your RD Chair.
