OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION FROM THE UTAH REPUBLICAN PARTY
TO ALL STATE DELEGATES REGARDING THE STATE CONVENTION
Dear State Delegate,
Congratulations on being elected a State Delegate for the Utah Republican Party! The upcoming State
Convention will be the biggest political event in Utah’s history. I encourage you to study the candidates,
the Party Platform and other ballot issues you will be voting on which are all available at
www.utgop.org. Please be invested in all races and plan to stay until the end of the Convention. We
have a lot to get done.
Check in and Registration – State Delegates will check-in by Congressional District and then by last
name. Registration starts at 7 a.m. and ends around 9:30 a.m. The general Convention will start
promptly at 10 a.m. Once the final credentials report is adopted by the convention body, registration
will be closed. Please arrive early to avoid complications in participating. Please bring a photo ID.
Multi-County Districts – County Delegates at county conventions typically decide races for the State
Legislature. But when a legislative district crosses over county lines then State Delegates participate in
the election at the State Convention.
If you are a resident of the following district(s) please be in place at the South Towne Expo Center at the
listed “Start Time” below. You will need to check in for the general convention in Hall 1 to receive your
State Delegate credentials and electronic voting keypad (this will take 15 minutes). You will also need to
check in again at your State House or State Senate election before the starting time (this will take about
5 minutes).
