Precinct delegates and certain at-large delegates given the preference under Rule 9 of the Convention Rules, but who do not attend the county convention, must notify Meghan Reckling or Mitch Zajac of the person’s intention to become a delegate or alternate delegate to the State Convention. The notification can be in any written form, including by letter or email, and must be received by Meghan Reckling or Mitch Zajac no later than the start of the County Convention.
