2009 Georgia GOP Covention Call

At its most recent meeting, the State Committee of the Georgia Republican Party approved the convention call for 2009:

Precinct Mass Meetings (counties of over 80,000 population) are scheduled for Saturday, 07 February.

Precinct Mass Meetings (counties of 80,000 population and under) and County Conventions are scheduled for Saturday, 14 March.

District Conventions are scheduled for Saturday, 18 April.

The State Convention is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, 15-16 May, at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center.

Population figures are based on the Census of 2000. Clarke County is one twenty-five Georgia counties having a population of more than 80,000 at that time, thus it will hold Precinct Mass Meetings in February.

Based on the 15,333 votes received by the McCain/Palin ticket in Clarke County in the 2008 presidential election, Clarke County will receive 15 delegates to the 2009 Georgia Republican Convention. Each county receives one delegate automatically. Thus, Clarke County will have sixteen delegates to the State Convention.
