How to be a Delegate in Arlington County, Virginia

To be a Delegate in Virginia, in most cases, you will need to be elected by your County Committee, then at your Congressional District Convention, then at the Commonwealth Convention. For example, in Arlington County, it works like this (Steps 1 - 7):

Step 1. Be a registered voter in the Commonwealth of Virginia. You may want to join the Party too, so that you are seen as “one of them”.

- Deadline to register to vote in Virginia is NEXT MONDAY, 13 February 2012 (as we see above).

- Join the VA GOP?:

Step 2. Submit your delegate application (and fee, payable to “ACRC”) to the Arlington Republican Committee NO LATER THAN 22 February 2012 (address: 405 S. Glebe Rd., Arlington, VA 22204). You can also submit these the day of the County Canvass (but this is unwise)…and of course dates and locations are “subject to change.”
