Tuesday May 22nd is the LAST day to become a Delegate in ILLINOIS

There may still be vacancies for you to become a delegate for the Illinois Republican Convention on June. If you can spare $50 and the time it takes to make a phone call, you may be able to become one right here and now. 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. Even if you're not in Illinois or are already a delegate, please spread this to everyone you can.

The first step is to call your county chairman/committeeman, 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.weareillinois.org/learn/counties.aspx Scroll down and find your county. The number listed under your county is the one you need to call. If no number is listed, leave a comment and I will try to help.

1a) If you are in a Ward or Township like much of Chicago, then go here: http://www.cookrepublicanparty.com/leadership.aspx Scroll down and find your township or ward. The number listed under your township/ward is the one you need to call. If no number is listed, leave a comment and I will try to help.

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 xxxx county/township/ward 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 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 the exact date & time should I get there? (it should be Tinley Park Convention Center
18451 Convention Center Drive Tinley Park, IL 60477 Friday, June 8, 2012 at 9:00 AM - Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 3:00 PM (CT))

All that should be left, other than what the person on the line tells you, is to pay the $50 fee and 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.

Please post any questions and/or success stories if you are able to become a delegate (I'm curious if this or my other IL post has actually helped someone become a delegate) in the comment section below. Good luck, we need you.
