Calling all conservatives, libertarians, and constitutionalists:
The Idaho State GOP Convention will be held in Nampa from June 2 – 4 and YOU can become a delegate, but you need to act ASAP!
Ada County will send nearly 200 delegates and alternates to the convention. We need a grassroots army to apply for every one of those seats, but THE DEADLINE TO APPLY IS FRIDAY, MAY 20TH.
The State Convention can be raucous, controversial, and FUN! There truly is no better way to spend a weekend. It’s the best way that conservative / libertarian / constitutional Republicans can make a direct stand against the lobbyists, cronies, and corrupt politicians who are trying to take over the party.
At the 2014 State Convention, both Senator Rand Paul and Governor Mike Huckabee attended. (We held a special meet and greet with the Senator that was awesome!)

HOW TO BECOME A DELEGATE:
Click here for the application form.
The process is a bit complicated, so pay attention. In general, delegates are selected by the newly elected Precinct Committeemen at county and district conventions that occur shortly after the primary.
This year, Ada County created a rule that interested parties must submit an application to a nominating committee, who will present their selection to all the PC’s at the county convention for ratification. The nominating committee will select individuals based on a point system that awards points based on volunteerism and donations.
EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU’LL HAVE ZERO POINTS, YOU CAN AND SHOULD STILL APPLY. You don’t have to have any points to be selected, but it helps.
ANY REGISTERED REPUBLICAN VOTER OF ADA COUNTY IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY TO BE A DELEGATE. You don’t have to be a PC to apply.
You must download, fill out and sign and application form, then either hand deliver it, or scan and email it, before Friday, May 20th at 5:00 PM.
(If you don’t have a scanner, there is a handy cell phone app called CamScanner that turns your phone into a scanner.)
You can even take a regular picture of the form and email it, and that will count.
Examples of what will get you points are contained in this document.
There is not a space on the form to list how much you’ve donated to the party or Republican causes. Enter that anywhere on the sheet. You can even enter your answers on a separate sheet if you need more room.
Completed forms must be emailed to the party Secretary and Chair. Also, please CC us a copy so that we can track how many applicants we get. Please send your completed application to all three of the following email addresses:
- firstname.lastname@example.org — SECRETARY
- RebeccaYoung@earthlink.net — CHAIR
- IdahoDelegates@gmail.com — ID4L
You can also drop off a physical copy to ID4L Campaign HQ, 1111 S. Orchard, Suite 246. We’ll make sure it gets to the Chair in time.
Delegates to the State Convention elect State Party leadership, national delegates, vote on rules, resolutions, and come up with a new platform. Things get heated and the debate is great! It’s also a fantastic bonding experience with fellow patriots.
Come join us and do battle!
