2022 Precinct Convention Platform Resolutions

Precinct Resolutions 2022

Attention all grassroots supporters of faith, family, and freedom:  Party Platforms are going to be written as the parties prepare for the State convention this year.

Delegates are grassroots activists who volunteer to lead at their precinct, county or senate district, or state convention.  Many precinct conventions are going on this Saturday, March 5th.  If you voted in the primary or are affiliated with the party you can introduce and pass resolutions for party leaders to further discuss at the county/senate district convention. Whether you can be involved at the precinct, county, or state level – any degree of involvement is valuable.

Look online or call your county party headquarters for meeting details.  This means you have a great opportunity to take a stand for important pro-life, pro-family, and pro-freedom issues by submitting a resolution to your party’s platform at your local convention.

A resolution is a statement of principle that is voted on at a political convention.
