Are we only doing questions via chat?

If someone voted in the Republican primary can we forgive them or is there a waiting period?
Mike Rawlins - Collin County

There is no forgiveness. They are affiliated with the R party for the remainder of the calendar year.
Larry P. Davis, Hunt County Chair
01:04:36
Calendar year or until next Primary, Mike?
Mike Rawlins - Collin County

Calendar year

what happens at the state committee if the chair names themself committee chair of all the committees. Am i correct in saying at the state convention it’s irrelevant who was committee chair because we only had a pro forma convention.
Kelly Blackburn - Ellis County
01:14:51
Is is recommended that CEC members take on committee positions for the convention or can anyone serve?
Larry P. Davis, Hunt County Chair
01:15:13
Am I correct, there is no provision for Alternate Delegates anymore?
Mike Rawlins - Collin County
01:16:38
Correct, no alternate delegates.
Mike Rawlins - Collin County
01:16:45
Anyone who has pre-registered for the convention may serve on one of the committees.
Kelly Blackburn - Ellis County
01:16:54
thank you Mike
Kay Parr
01:17:31
Each SD Caucus at the State Convention will elect one person to serve on each of the State Convention Committees. Any delegate can run for these positions.
Larry P. Davis, Hunt County Chair
01:17:32
Thanks
Bart Ewald
01:17:52
Is there a PPT that we can use as an elementary guide to go through with our convention attendees...Kind of a primer we can go through that explains why we hold them and in general how they work?

01:24:00
will you send us a list of delegates who pre registered
Wayne Lefferd
01:25:20
Is the Delegate count include the County Chair or are they an extra.
Camile White
01:25:59
When will the list be available stating how many delegates each precinct will receive?
Mary Mann
01:27:46
The current chair and if you have a new incoming chair are not included in your delegate count. Neither are your SD Committee Persons.
delia mims
01:30:16
So i don’t need to register on this form as chair
Mike Rawlins - Collin County
01:32:38
That is correct Delia
Mike Rawlins - Collin County
01:32:50
Sorry - you SHOULD register!
Michael Fladmark - Henderson County
01:34:07
A County Chair registers for the County Convention - but NOT as a delegate - correct?
Kay Parr
01:36:17
Can I do a joint convention with two senate districts as long as we separate out for the state delegate selections, but do all the explanations of the process and discuss the resolutions as one group. Likely to have fewer than 100 attendees total.
Marco Orrantia
01:36:18
Yes
Adrienne Martin
01:40:46
Where can I find the template email invite to the county convention?
Mike Rawlins - Collin County
01:41:11
A template invitiation was in the recent Count Chronicle
Kay Parr
01:46:29
I believe there is a form that people can fill out if they want to be a state delegate but cannot be at the county convention. Is that correct.
Mike Strong
01:49:55
It's good to use the county convention this year as practice for the big presidential year 2024 convention, with committees etc. this year even if there isn't much work to do.
Wayne Lefferd
01:50:34
Can you add on the Convention-location web page that directs people to the convention-RSVP web page.
Bart Ewald
01:56:55
what are the ethics involved with up endorsing one delegate over another as county chair?
Bart Ewald
02:02:08
thanks...I've had this situation before
Kelly Blackburn - Ellis County
02:02:55
Thank you for the script and all the help Marco!
Bart Ewald
02:04:18
if they vote in the Republican runoff will that void that Oath?
Mike Rawlins - Collin County
02:04:45
The runoff will be after your county/sd convention
Bart Ewald
02:04:59
I know, that's why I am asking.
Bart Ewald
02:07:52
Thanks Mike. You did a great job!
