In the Spring of 2020, Arizona Republicans held caucus meetings at the Legislative District level in Pima and Maricopa, as well as at the county level in Arizona’s 13 other counties, to elect delegates and alternates to our May 9th State Convention.

The purpose of the State Convention is to elect national delegates and alternates to the Republican National Committee’s Quadrennial Convention to nominate our candidate, President Donald J. Trump, for the office of President of the United States. Each County and Legislative District (LD) Committee is represented by delegates. Should a voting delegate not be present, that individual will be replaced with an alternate from the corresponding County or LD if available. The primary components that will be used to facilitate your attendance and engagement will be an electronic voting platform and a live video stream of the event. A secondary audio component will also be available for those who cannot or are unable to use the primary visual component of the Convention.

All delegates and alternates must cast a ballot. Ultimately, only the votes of delegates and properly tapped alternates (if available) will be counted. In order to vote, we will be using an electronic voting platform called Voatz, an app-based platform that can be used on a smartphone or compatible tablet with cellular data service. If you do not have access to a smartphone or tablet, then you have the option to cast your vote via telephone (“Vote by Voice”), which you can opt in to here. Voatz leverages the latest technology and developments in security in its platform, and all votes are encrypted, anonymized, and password protected.

After you vote, you will receive a ballot receipt confirming your selections. That way, you can verify that your vote was counted as you intended. The Republican Party of Arizona is holding training webinars for elected delegates and alternates on how to use the Voatz platform. You can watch a recording of the webinar by clicking on the “Webinar” link in the menu at the top of the page.

The primary video component of the Convention will be a live stream broadcast across multiple channels, including here on our website and on our Party’s YouTube and Facebook channels. The live stream will be available for the duration of the Convention. You are highly encouraged to watch the live stream to enhance your overall experience.

The Republican Party of Arizona's State Convention will be held virtually on May 9, 2020 at 10AM.

In addition, we will be using a conference call-style system to deliver a reliable and secure telephonic option for the meeting. At approximately 10:00 AM, delegates and alternates will receive a toll-free call* at the number provided on their state delegate application from the Chairwoman inviting them to hold on the line for the start of the Convention. Individuals are strongly advised to answer the call when it rings to make sure they are connected into the meeting in a timely manner and can be accounted for at the start of the Convention. A dial-in number will also be provided via email for those who accidentally miss the call or get disconnected.

* If you are an elected state delegate or alternate who wishes to update your contact information, you may do so by filling out the form below. If you do not receive an email from the Republican Party of Arizona within 24 hours after submitting your updated information (be sure to check your spam folder), please give us a call at 602-957-7770.

To view the full list of candidates running for national delegate, broken up by Congressional District and At-Large, click here.

Each delegate and/or alternate may vote for 6 candidates listed on their specific Congressional District ballot; there are 3 delegates and 3 alternates elected per CD. Each delegate and/or alternate may vote for 54 At-Large candidates; there are 27 delegates and 27 alternates elected At-Large. In CDs, the 4th-6th highest vote-getter will be elected alternates while the 28th-54th vote-getters on the At-Large ballot will be elected alternates. Ties between the last delegate and the first alternate shall be decided by a game of chance as will ties for the last alternate position. In summary, we will elect 27 CD delegates (three from each of Arizona’s 9 Congressional Districts), 27 CD alternates (again, three from each of the 9 Congressional Districts), 27 At-Large delegates, and 27 At-Large alternates – for a total of 54 delegates and 54 alternates. 

The Rules set for the State Convention do not allow the same candidate to appear on both the CD and At-Large ballots. Moreover, there are no floor nominations. You will know who all the candidates are before you vote in our State Convention on May 9th.
