Road To Convention

Road To Convention 2024

Republican Party of Texas State Convention

San Antonio Convention Center
 May 23-25, 2024

Step 1 -  Precinct Conventions will be held by Senate District simultaneously on Thursday, March 7, 2024  6:30pm-8:30pm.  Contact your respective SD Chairman for details, but generally held at same location as your SD Convention. There are FOUR Senate Districts (SDs) in Dallas County, so all precincts within each SD will meet in their respective SD.

Precinct Convention Temporary Chairs generally default to the current precinct chair.  If you do not have a precinct chair, anyone is able to run their precinct convention. If you are unable to attend your precinct convention it is still possible to attend the Republican Party of Texas State Convention in Houston. In order to do this you MUST make an application to and appear in front of the Nominations Committee and attend the upcoming Senate District Convention. (See Also DCRP Calendar) If you are unable to attend the Senate District Convention as a Delegate, however, you can attend as a guest. The venues for each are listed below; we will again gather by Senate District.  If you do not know in which Senate District you live, go here:  Put in your first & last names along with your birthdate in proper format, and click on the "my districts" tab when your individual record comes up. Please contact your SD Temporary Chair for information regarding upcoming Nominations Committee hearings which will begin soon. Check back here as the times and dates of the Nominations Committee will be posted here as we receive them from our SD Chairs.

Step 2 - Senate District Conventions Saturday, March 23, 2024

The day begins with check-in at 8:00 AM and is called to order promptly at 9:00 AM. (generally) A break for lunch will include a pre-paid box lunch (normally) or you are welcome to bring your sandwich and drink. Snacks are most often available. The Agenda for each  Senate District will differ slightly. The adjournment is at approximately 4-5:00 PM.  Committees are forming now:  Arrangements, Credentials, Nominations, Resolutions, and Rules.  Please contact the Temporary Chairs for your Senate District listed above.  If you don't know which SD you are in, please look up on Dallas County Votes here:  Put in your first & last names along with your birthdate in proper format, and click on the "my districts" tab when your individual record comes up.

Step 3 - Head To the State Convention in San Antonio, May 23-25, 2024

If you are SURE you can attend the Texas State Republican Convention in San Antonio, please sign up to be a Delegate. If you are not sure, PLEASE sign up to be an ALTERNATE DELEGATE, as 95-100% of ALTERNATES are elevated to full DELEGATE status at the Convention once you arrive due to unexpected circumstances. This is not for resume building. You cannot put Convention Delegate on your resume until you actually ATTEND the Convention. Roll Call is taken to assure a Quorum in each Senate District, and no-shows are duly noted. Committee members arrive on Sunday, May 19, 202, and will begin committee meetings on Monday, May 20, 2024. Convention attendees are expected to be there on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the Convention to VOTE on Party business and the RPT Convention Committee has to plan for full attendance. Room rates have been pre-set by the Host Hotels by the RPT and will be announced soon. We encourage ride-sharing. The convention will be held at the San Antonio Convention Center. Check back soon for reservation links. If you wish to attend the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, WI, July 15 - July 18, 2024, you MUST attend the State Convention.
