The Delegate Process 2012 - For DummiesSubmitted by tonym on Sat, 04/30/2011 - 19:08
Is it too early to start talking about how each of us should strive to become delegates? Resurrected from 08, http://dailypaul.com/34640/here-is-the-delegate-processfrom-... , could anyone explain exactly how this works? Will there be a list of Ron Paul coordinators like last time? Exactly at which point, and in what way, is it advantageous to be a delegate?
All I can gather so far is - Folks must be registered as a Republican at least a month before the district conventions (early January);
District conventions are held on Super Tuesday ... at those conventions delegates are nominated (by whom?) to go to the state convention, which is at least a month later (and I think is sometime in March)
At the state convention, delegates are nominated (by whom?) for the national convention and are pledged to support a candidate (but can still choose no-preference?).
