Precinct Conventions

The precinct convention is the first step in the political convention process.

If your county is not online, please contact your county chair to find out when and where your precinct convention will be held. Your county chair can also tell you how many delegates and alternates your precinct can elect to the county/senatorial district (SD) convention.

2024 Delegate Allocations by Voter Tabulation District (VTD) ~coming soon!

Please note: most county precinct lines follow the VTD lines. If your county precinct boundaries are the same as the VTD boundaries and have not changed since the 2022 General Election, the data in the spreadsheet should be correct. If your precinct lines don’t follow the VTD lines, you will need to calculate your delegate allocations based on your precinct lines and the 2022 General Election results using the formula found in RPT Rule 23A (1 delegate for every 25 votes for Gov. Abbott in Nov. 2022, rounded to the nearest whole number). If any precinct lines have changed since the 2022 General Election, you will need to determine a way to attempt to fairly distribute the affected Delegate Allotment among the affected precincts.

If you plan to attend your Republican precinct convention, make sure you vote in the Republican Primary Election. Alternatively, you may sign an oath of affiliation at the precinct convention stating that you will not participate in other parties’ business during this convention cycle.

The convention is usually called to order by the precinct chair. If the precinct chair is not present, any participant may begin the meeting. There is no minimum number of people who must be present to hold a precinct convention. If you are the only person present, you can still hold the precinct convention. A precinct convention packet may be available, or you may use the forms provided on this page.

Participants at the precinct convention first elect permanent convention officers, usually a convention chair and secretary. They then elect delegates and alternates to the county/SD convention. Finally, they consider and vote on any resolutions presented by a participant.

To be valid, all completed paperwork must be submitted to the county Republican party two to three days after the precinct convention is held.

County or Senate District Convention Materials

What is a County SD Convention? 

A County Convention is held when the county is completely within one state senatorial district. The incumbent county chairman (which may be different than the one elected in the primary election) serves as the temporary county convention chairman.

A Senatorial District (SD) Convention is held when the county is divided between two or more state senatorial districts. The temporary senatorial district chairman is elected by the precinct chairs within that county’s state senatorial district.

Anyone may attend the convention as a guest. Only those individuals who were elected by their precinct can be delegates and alternates at the county or senatorial district convention.

The county/senatorial district convention is the 4th Saturday after the primary election unless there is a conflict with Easter or Passover. Delegates to the county or state senatorial district convention elect permanent convention officers, elect delegates and alternates to the state convention, and consider and vote on resolutions.

Starting at this level, committees may be used to do some of the preliminary work for the convention. For example, a nominations committee may be elected to consider those wanting to be elected as delegates to the next convention, then present a slate of delegates and alternates for the convention body to vote on. Also, a resolutions committee may be elected to consider resolutions, then present a resolutions report for the convention body to vote on. Contact your local County Chair or State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) member for more information about the convention or committee meetings.
