Do you know how the political system works? Are you tired of what “THEY” are doing to our country?
A precinct delegate represents the people in their precinct and is eligible to be selected as a delegate to the state convention where the delegates vote on who will lead the party and fill the offices of the party as well as selecting many important candidates on the ballot for which there is no primary.
The district where you vote is called a precinct. In most of Barry County that is a township. Each township has up to 4 or 5 delegate slots for each party and in most cases most (if not all) of them are vacant.
There is no need to campaign for this office as many of the slots are vacant and you are unlikely to have a candidate challenging you.
This is not a big commitment, please consider it. It is a 2 year office that can be renewed at the end of the 2 years.
For more information about the importance of being a precinct delegate check out this link.
Here is a list of interesting links on the subject of Precinct Delegates. This is the list that was referred to at our Oct 11th meeting.
We have put them here for your convenience.

Tea Party “withering away?” We have other things to do:
The conservative movement is urging its members to seek positions as Republican precinct representatives. Their goal is to remake the party - and U.S. politics - from within
There is an article by a Progressive who came up with the “creative” idea of infiltrating the Republican Party by having Progressives try to to become voting members of the Republican Party: http://www.nowpublic.com/world/gang-stalking-effective-local-grassr...
To watch a great video on the importance of getting involved:

We are still looking for tea party members who are interested in becoming precinct delegates.
