KEYNOTE SPEAKER GOVERNOR SUSANA MARTINEZ
Bernalillo County Central Committee Meeting
On Thursday January 30th at 6pm we'll hold a meeting of the Bernalillo County Central Committee for the purpose of adopting the special rules for the 2020 Bernalillo County Republican Pre-Primary Convention on February 1st (as well as other business). This County Central Committee meeting will take place at 1406 Eubank Blvd NE, Albuquerque NM 87112 (the location of our new office). There will be no fee for this meeting, but refreshments will be provided. This is a great opportunity to catch up on your dues payments for 2019 and to pay them for 2020. You must stay current on your dues to be a voting member of the County Central Committee and to maintain your membership on the State Central Committee. This will be the last opportunity to pre-register for the 2020 Bernalillo County Republican Pre-Primary Convention.
February 1st is the Bernalillo County Republican Pre-Primary Convention.
We're Proud to Welcome Governor Susana Martinez as Keynote Speaker!
All registered Republican voters living in Bernalillo County are welcome to attend our County Republican Pre-Primary Convention. It will take place on February 1st at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, located at 1901 University Blvd NE, ABQ 87102. Governor Susana Martinez will be our keynote speaker. Candidates for federal and statewide offices will also give speeches, as will New Mexico Trump Team director Leslie White. Our tentative schedule (we're flexible on candidate speeches):
Same day registration will begin at 11am
Convention hall doors will open at 12pm
Opening remarks will begin around 12:45pm
Speeches will begin around 1:00pm
Ward Caucus meetings will begin soon after 2:00pm
All additional convention business will commence after Ward Caucus meetings finish, and all business must be concluded by 6pm (but will most likely end far earlier than that).
Refreshments will be provided.
The purpose of the convention is to elect delegates to the New Mexico Republican State Pre-Primary Convention (on March 7th, details TBA). At the State Convention these delegates will cast their votes to put our statewide and federal Republican candidates on the 2020 Republican Primary Ballot. These delegate votes will also determine the order in which candidates appear on the primary ballot.
Pre-registration for the convention will begin on Wednesday January 1st and run through the end of our January 30th County Central Committee Meeting (details above). Pre-registration will be $42. Registration on the day of the convention will be $73. Registration can be done online at BCGOP.ORG and can be submitted via credit card. We can accept payment by check at our office, but please call ahead to ensure a volunteer will be available to accept your payment (505-226-1238). NOTE: We are no longer accepting mailed registration fees. Checks can be made out to: Republican Party of Bernalillo County
Attendees must be registered Republican voters residing within Bernalillo County. We will be verifying your registration status at the time you register to attend the convention. If the most recent Bernalillo County Clerk data (as of January 20th, 2020) does not list you as a Republican residing within Bernalillo County, your registration will be revoked and your registration fee will be refunded to you by mail within 30 days.
Attendees of the County Pre-Primary Convention will vote amongst themselves to see which of them will become delegates to the State Pre-Primary Convention.
If you become a delegate you do NOT have to attend the State Pre-Primary Convention, and you may instead give your proxy vote to another delegate attending the state convention.
March 7th is the Republican Party of New Mexico's
State Pre-Primary Convention
More information about the State Convention will be available soon.
THANK YOU to All of our Amazing Volunteers!
As a volunteer organization, we thrive only because our membership dedicates its time and effort to the cause of electing Republican candidates to office. Without the dedication of our volunteers we would be entirely helpless and without representation in government. Again, thank you!
