2020 County Convention
The Gaston County Republican Party will hold its 2020 Precinct Meetings and County Convention on Saturday, March 14, 2020. All registered Republicans are invited and encouraged to attend. Registration will begin at 10:30am and end promptly at 11:30am. You cannot register after 11:30am. The registration fee is $10.00 payable in cash, check, or credit card. This year we will be allowing online pre-registration, which is open now and will close at 11:59pm on Friday, March 13, 2020.
The convention will be held at the Gaston County DHHS Social Services Division Auditorium, which is located at 330 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way, on the corner of Long Avenue. Precinct Meetings will start at 11:30am. In order to be seated as a delegate at the county convention, you must be registered by 11:30am. To be guaranteed a spot as a delegate to the county convention, you must be present at your precinct meeting. If you cannot make the precinct meeting, you may pre-register online and your name will be submitted to those present at your precinct meeting to be elected as a delegate. Online registration does not guarantee your election as a delegate, but will help if you cannot make it or you arrive late.
The County Convention will follow our Precinct Meetings at 12:00pm. You may also become a delegate for the 5th Congressional District Convention (held in April in Morganton) and the NCGOP Convention (held in May in Greenville).
This year we will have lunch available for purchase, catered by Sammy's in Belmont. You can purchase lunch when you pre-register. If you do not pre-register for lunch, we may not have lunch available for you. Some lunches will be available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.
Absentee delegates: If you cannot attend the County Convention, but would like to be added as a delegate to the District and State Conventions, you can be added in absentia if and only if you complete the absentee form and submit it prior to the start of the Convention. When submitting the form, you must pay the delegate fee of $10.00.
