Due to the recent snow storms, many counties in Oklahoma have moved their GOP biennial precinct meetings dates, times, and locations. (Originally set for Tuesday, 2/1/2011, many of these meetings have been moved to Tuesday, 2/8/2011.)
NOTE: Not all of the precinct meetings have been moved to Tuesday, 2/8/11, however!
Some precincts are meeting earlier or later, again due to weather concerns or the county’s needs. (i.e. Precinct 171 in Tulsa county will be having its meeting on Monday, February 7, 2011 at Siegi’s restaurant, 8104 S. Sheridan Rd, from 7-8 pm. Others in Tulsa County are meeting by House district at a central location on the 8th, or in their homes on the 8th.)
The only way to find out for certain is to call your precinct chairman or vice-chairman for details. If you do not know who these people are, or you do not have a chairman for your precinct, contact your local county party office for details of the precinct meeting date, time, and location. Volunteer to be precinct chairman until you can be properly elected.
By the way, when you attend this meeting, suggest moving the precinct meetings to April! It’s warmer.
Listed below are a few county sites to check for precinct meeting information. A complete list of county information and contact detail is available on the state GOP website.
State GOP –http://okgop.com/
Tulsa County GOP – www.tulsagop.org – Keep checking back for updates on Precinct meeting locations and dates.
Oklahoma County GOP – www.myokgop.com/oklahoma
Cleveland County GOP – http://clevelandcountygop.com/ – Note: Cleveland County’s information on precinct meetings, precinct chairman, etc. is virtually non-existent. It appears that in Cleveland County Republicans have to register online to see a meeting location. Not sure what is wrong in this county; perhaps they need new leadership or someone who knows how to utilize a website and communicate a bit better.
Payne County GOP – http://paynecountygop.org/ – No information about precinct meetings, but Groundhog day is noted on the calendar. Wake up, Payne County!
Rogers County GOP – http://rogerscountygop.com/ – Lots of good information here. Precinct Meetings appear to be moved to Feb. 17, 2011. See their website for details.
Wagoner County GOP – http://www.wagonergop.org/ – Good information here. Click link at bottom to see chart of meeting locations.
Washington County GOP – No website. Check here for info. Precinct meetings rescheduled for Monday, February 7, 2011, at Arvest Bank, 4225 SE Adams RD in the Community Room at 7 p.m. “All registered Republicans are encouraged to attend.”
Again, please check with your county GOP offices to verify the exact meeting dates, times, and locations. The precinct chairman and committee are the ultimate authority within the precinct so check with them first, then check with the county.
Also, for those who would like some reading materials while stuck at home, try reading the State GOP Rules. Might want to change Rule 16 to clearly state that the GOP precinct meetings need to be in April when the weather is better. (Only have to worry about tornadoes then.) Also, suggest offering these resolutions at the precinct meeting.
