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

House District 33 Assembly

The primary purpose of the House District 33 Assembly is to designate Republican candidate(s) for House District 33, where the designated candidate(s) will appear on the ballot for the Primary Election, which will take place on June 26, 2018.  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 26, 2018.  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.

At the completion of each of these Assemblies, the Broomfield County Republicans will have participated in the selection of the Primary ballot candidates for House District 33 and Congressional District 2 as designated through the Colorado State Assembly process.

State Assembly

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

  • Governor
  • Secretary of State
  • Attorney General
  • State Treasurer

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 26, 2016.

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