★ Ok, The Illinois Gop Is Starting To Piss Me Off. They Extend The Deadline To Register As A Delegate For A 5th Time!Submitted by sovereignjanice on Fri, 05/25/2012 - 20:57
I've been trying to help people become delegates for the IL state convention for about a week now. This is the 5th time the GOP has extended the deadline to register to become a delegate!!! Now the deadline is May 29th. I can't say I know why or if becoming a delegate this late in the game is easier because of it, but it is what it is.
Some people have said their chairman told them the deadline was the 22nd and can't apply anymore. That you can only register as a guest now. While I don't know if this is true or just establishment tricks, the GOP's website where you get your ticket and pay your fee has a count down which says that there's still time to register as either delegate, alternate or guest and have extended all 3 five times so far. Why would they extend the time for all 3 if someone can only be a guest? See for yourself: http://ilgopconvention.eventbrite.com/
I recently received an email (5/25/2012) from GOP chairman Pat Brady saying that there is still time to register.
And McHenry County's GOP website says there's still time (http://www.mcgop.org/mcgop/default.html) It could just be that they haven't updated it, but I'm still a firm believer that a phone call never hurt anyone. I don't post these threads just to get people's hopes up or to pass bad information, rather I have trust issues with the establishment.
If there's anyone out there that's become a delegate or alternate after the supposed May 22nd deadline, please leave a comment saying so
If anyone out there still wants to try and become a delegate, feel free to leave a comment and/or send me an email: sovereign120@gmail. You'll probably be in contact with my son at this point, but he's more knowledgeable anyway.
