The submission of this application by March 7, 2020, constitutes a self-nomination to stand for election at the State Endorsing Convention convening on March 28, 2020, in Bismarck, provided the Committee on Permanent Organization determines the applicant is qualified. All qualified persons who applied to the Committee will be deemed self-nominated as a delegate or alternate candidate unless withdrawn, in writing submitted to the Chairman, before the ballot is printed. No other nominations will be accepted from the floor at the 2020 State Endorsing Convention.
The Committee on Permanent Organization shall score, evaluate, and make recommendations for a slate of delegates and alternates to attend the National Republican Convention from applications received by March 7, 2020. The Committee shall make this recommendation by 5pm on Monday, March 23. 2020, and subsequently post its recommendation, along with the qualified applicants and the scores, on the State Party website. In addition, the Committee’s recommendation shall be given to each State Endorsing Convention delegate and alternate at or before registration.
An applicant must be elected at the State Endorsing Convention to serve as a delegate or alternate to the National Republican Convention. In addition to the State Chair, National Committeeman and National Committeewoman (who are automatic delegates without alternates), twenty-six (26) persons will be elected as delegates and twenty-six (26) as alternates. Voting shall occur by ballot, with nominees listed alphabetically by last name, with nominees recommended by the Committee on Permanent Organization identified in bold type. The delegate candidates receiving the highest vote totals equaling the number of delegate slots available shall be elected as delegates to the Republican National Convention. The remaining delegates candidates receiving the next highest vote totals shall be elected as alternate delegates to the Republican National Convention. Ties shall be decided by lot.
By submitting this application, I pledge, if successfully elected, to serve as delegate/alternate to the 2020 National Republican Convention. I further pledge to support the North Dakota Republican Party’s choice of nominee(s) for President on the first ballot as determined and allocated by the results of the 2020 North Dakota Presidential Caucus.
