♠ Attention all ILLINOIS people. Anyone who can attend the convention on the 8th and/or 9th. Please read this and pass it on.Submitted by sovereignjanice on Thu, 06/07/2012 - 08:40
Two very important things for all ILLINOIS residents concerning our state convention this Friday and Saturday June 8th & 9th
1) We're working very had on making sure guests can become delegates. So if you want to help out the grassroots effort and have the possibility to become a delegate right there at the convention please go to http://ilgopconvention.eventbrite.com/ and register as a guest. You can do it right now, all online, this very second, and just show up to the convention. I make no promises about the upgrade to delegate, but if you know anything about Paul supporters, there's no group more willing to put in the effort to try. (It would be great if you could be there for both days, but if you can come for just one day, just one hour, just one vote then we'd rather have you there than not at all)
2) Whether you're coming as a delegate, alternate or guest, please BRING AS MUCH INFO ABOUT YOURSELF AS YOU CAN. That means have on you your registration ticket, photo ID, voters card, any kind of confirmation that you're a member of the Republican Party or have voted Republican in the past.
We're well aware that not everyone has all this information or will remember it, but if you can, please try. Some stuff may not be needed and we'll be working very hard at the convention to obtain anything you may need, but it's easier if you're able to bring all that info yourself.
In summary, if you're not sure about going, SHOW UP because you can still make a difference even at the 11th hour. If you're not sure what to bring, BRING EVERYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF. There's nothing you can bring that can't be left in the car if you don't need it. There will be a Ron Paul booth you can go to and we'll do our best to help so don't feel bad if you don't have something or think you did something wrong. We'll work on it together.
Not everyone is on the DailyPaul so please email, call or contact in anyway your Illinois friends and give them this info to ensure the most amount of people know these things before hand. It makes it easier for all of us.
P.S. Dress nice
