The Republican delegate selection process in Minnesota really starts at the Precinct Caucuses. The Precinct Caucuses will be held on Tuesday evening, February 27, 2024
The three delegates and three alternates positions to be elected at each Congressional District will be allocated to Presidential candidates based the percentage of the votes cast for them in the Republican Presidential Primary set for Tuesday, March 5 (note that early voting in the primary will start on January 19, 2024).
Republicans wishing to run for 2024 RNC delegate/alternate at a Congressional District Convention must live in the Congressional District in which they wish to be elected. They must also identify for which allocated Presidential candidate "slot" they are running, or if they wish to run as an "unbound" delegate/alternate, if such a position is allocated.
2024 RNC Delegates (and Alternates, if seated) shall be bound to their candidate on the first Presidential nominating ballot. On any or all subsequent Presidential nomination ballots, the Delegates or seated Alternates are unbound.
Individuals interested in running to be a 2024 RNC delegate/alternate should know that they must be available July 15-18 to attend the convention. They will need to cover all of their costs, which will include convention fees, lodging, and transportation. Hopefully, these costs will be known before the Congressional District Conventions.
If you are interested in becoming a 2024 RNC Delegate or Alternate, you are urged to participate in your 2024 Republican caucus on February 27, 2024 and run to be a delegate to your BPOU convention.
