The Broomfield County Delegates and Alternates will participate in these Higher Assemblies and State Convention, which are held primarily to complete the following.

Senate District 23 Assembly and House District 33 Assembly

The primary purpose of the Senate District 23 and House District 33 Assemblies is to designate Republican candidate(s) for each of those Districts, where the designated candidate(s) will appear on the ballot for the Primary Election, which will take place on June 21, 2016.  The process for these Assemblies will generally take place as follows:

  • The District Assembly shall take no more than two ballots for each office to be designated.
  • Every candidate receiving thirty (30%) percent or more of the votes of all duly accredited District Assembly delegates, who are present and voting for that office, shall be certified by affidavit of the presiding officer and secretary of the District Assembly.
  • If no candidate receives 30% or more of the votes of all duly accredited District Assembly delegates, who are present and voting for that office, on the first ballot, a second ballot shall be cast for all the candidates for that office. If, on the second ballot, no candidate receives 30% or more of the votes cast, the District Assembly shall certify the two candidates receiving the highest numbers of votes as candidates for the office. The certificate of designation shall indicate the order of the vote received at the District Assembly by the candidates, but the District Assembly shall not declare that one candidate has received the nomination of the District Assembly. If two or more candidates receiving designation have received an equal number of votes, the order of certification of designation shall be determined by lot by the candidates.

Congressional District 2 Assembly

The primary purpose of the Congressional District 2 Assembly is to designate Republican candidate(s) for the Congressional District 2 seat, where the designated candidate(s) will appear on the ballot for the Primary Election, which will take place on June 21, 2016.  The process for these Assemblies will generally take place as follows:

  • The District Assembly shall take no more than two ballots for each office to be designated.
  • Every candidate receiving thirty (30%) percent or more of the votes of all duly accredited District Assembly delegates, who are present and voting for that office, shall be certified by affidavit of the presiding officer and secretary of the District Assembly.
  • If no candidate receives 30% or more of the votes of all duly accredited District Assembly delegates, who are present and voting for that office, on the first ballot, a second ballot shall be cast for all the candidates for that office. If, on the second ballot, no candidate receives 30% or more of the votes cast, the District Assembly shall certify the two candidates receiving the highest numbers of votes as candidates for the office. The certificate of designation shall indicate the order of the vote received at the District Assembly by the candidates, but the District Assembly shall not declare that one candidate has received the nomination of the District Assembly. If two or more candidates receiving designation have received an equal number of votes, the order of certification of designation shall be determined by lot by the candidates.

In addition to the designation of the Republican candidate(s) for CD2, The CD2 Assembly will also designate one or more delegates so represent CD2 at the Republican National Convention on July 18-21st, 2016 in Cleveland, OH.

At the completion of each of these Assemblies, the Broomfield County Republicans will have participated in the selection of the Primary ballot candidates for Senate District 23, House District 33 and Congressional District 2.

State Convention

Like the Higher Assemblies, the primary purpose of the State Convention is to designate Republican candidates, but for Statewide races. Examples of these races include:

  • US Senate
  • Governor
  • Secretary of State
  • Attorney General

The process for the candidate selection is much like the process for the Higher Assemblies, where a ballot vote will be taken to designate the candidates for the Primary Election that will take place on June 21, 2016.

And, similar to the Congressional District 2 Assembly, delegates to the State Convention will designate several delegates to represent the State of Colorado at the Republican National Convention on July 18-21st, 2016 in Cleveland, OH.

Finally, in addition to the selection of the Statewide candidates and National Delegates, the Delegates to the State Assembly will vote to ratify a number of proposed party resolutions.  This is similar to what was completed at the Broomfield County Assembly.
