There may still be vacancies for you to become a delegate for the Arkansas Republican Convention on June 9th. I've been helping people in my home state of Illinois: http://www.dailypaul.com/234993/attention-illinois-residents... and would like to do the same in other states, especially those that I heard the campaign hasn't done much in. Here's a simple to-do list on how you can become a delegate or alternate delegate if there are slots still available to do so.
The first step is to call your county chairman, but most people stop there because they don't know where to get that information or what to ask, so we'll start there:
1) Find the phone number of your county chairman by going here: http://www.arkansasgop.org/index.cfm?p=CountyMap Click on the county you live in. After you click your county, the phone number of the county chairman (the number you need to call) will appear underneath that map
2) When you call you'll want to ask the person on the other line if you could speak to someone regarding a question you have concerning the state convention in June. The person may need to transfer you to some one else, but when you get to someone who can help you, say "I live in the xxxx county and was wondering if there are any vacancies available to become a delegate or alternate delegate for the convention in June." They will either answer with yes, no, or only alternates.
3) If they say yes or only alternates, ask what the person needs from you in order to do to become one.
4) Then do the obvious, give them what they need and ask ALL questions you want answered. Here are a few suggested questions to ask
4a) Ask: What do I need to bring with me to the convention to show that I am a delegate?
4b) Ask: What's the best way to contact you if I think of any questions or have an issue in the future.
4c) Ask: What is the address of the convention and what time should I get there.
4d) Ask: Is there a fee, what is the fee and how can I pay?
That's it. If you are still able to become a delegate that's how you do it. They'll have the information you need and those are the questions you should ask. Honestly, it's really not any more complicated than that.
