Electing Kansas Republicans

FROM THE CHAIR

The march to the National Convention continues.
Phase I, the Caucus, ended with the certification of the final delegate allocation (more below).   Few political party organizations could have pulled off a statewide effort this large and reacted so well to the unprecedentedly large turnout as well as you did.

Phase II, the one state and four district conventions, which meet to pick our national convention delegates and alternate delegates, is underway.  The 2nd and 3rd District Conventions are done (see below).  The 1st and 4th District Conventions and State Convention are coming up.
Unlike in the past 9 national conventions, who the delegates are in each state is garnering national interest and close scrutiny because of the growing likelihood of a contested convention.
Last, we have 15 state primaries left over the next 10 weeks.  Drip, drip, drip will come the results until the last vote in June 7.

Want to be a page at the National Convention in Cleveland this summer? Reply to this e-mail.
  • Must be 16-22 years old
  • Serve From July 16  to 22, 2016

Page duties will involve vital convention-related activities such as acting as floor runners, assisting with caucus meetings, and distributing official convention materials. Pages are not assured floor credentials. The tasks they are assigned to perform at the convention will determine their access during any given session.

Some highlights:
 
Absentee Balloting:  Now able to vote: elderly, out of  state students, military, those with religious barriers to voting on Saturday, those out of state on Caucus day.
  • Oldest Voter: 106 years old
  • Most Distant Voter:  US Embassy Baghdad
Provisional Balloting:  allowed college students away from home and those traveling to vote.
 
St Louis Site:  Over 500 Shocker fans were able to see their team play and vote in the Caucus.
 
Turnout:  was 260% of 2012’s turnout.  That is one of, if not the, highest turnout increase in the nation.  Around 81,000 (+) people tried to vote in the Caucus – including some democrats and unaffiliated voters, who unfortunately had not become Republicans in time; some votes for Carson, Fiorina, and Bush (the ballots were printed before they withdrew); and some who requested or returned absentee ballots too late.
