The Clark County Republican Party (CCRP) will hold pooled precinct caucuses at 11 locations on the morning of Sat., Jan. 13. This is part of a statewide effort on the same day. Delegates will be nominated and elected for the Clark County Republican Convention which will be held on Feb. 3 at the Clark County Fairgrounds.

This is the beginning of the presidential election cycle, where grassroots Republicans are invited to participate in updating the party platform. The delegates they elected will represent each precinct at the County Convention, which in turn, will elect 190 delegates to represent Clark County at the Washington State Republican Party Convention, April 18-20 in Spokane.

Local Republicans will be offered the opportunity to decide which Republican candidates they want to endorse for nine statewide offices. These include governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, treasurer, auditor, secretary of state, superintendent of public instruction, public lands commissioner and insurance commissioner,

Additionally, the delegates at the WSRP convention will vote to endorse one candidate for US Senate. They will then break into 10 separate meetings, and vote to endorse one candidate for each Congressional district.

The Jan. 13 caucuses are by precinct, with anywhere from about 20 to 50 precincts meeting at each location. Voters will need to know their precinct, listed on their voter registration card or by checking here and then after entering your information at the “Voter Portal.” Then click on “Voter Registration.”

All pooled caucus meetings will begin promptly at 10 a.m. Election of delegates and alternates will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. It is expected the entire process will be over by 11:30 a.m., so don’t be late. Doors will open at each location at 8 a.m., with credentialing beginning at 9 a.m.

Each person attending will have to show identification, your voter registration card and/or your driver’s license. They will also have to sign a statement certifying that they are a republican.
