For a complete list of Precinct Convention times and locations for March 10, 2018, please click here.
Travis GOP will have precinct conventions on the Saturday following the Primary election rather than on the night of the election.
Official precinct convention notices should be posted to the door or main entrance of your precinct's voting location on primary election night. The list is posted here as a courtesy and we will do our best to make sure it is accurate. Please check with your precinct chairman (click here for directory) if you have any questions. If your precinct does not have a chairman your default location will be Central Texas Gun Works (please check the locations link above for address and exact times).
For more information on the convention process -- including what it means to be a precinct, county, SD, or state delegate, and plans being made to host the biennial county convention -- please see our Travis GOP Conventions site.

We will have all the candidates who can attend participate together. There are 18 candidates, so this will be a major undertaking! If you're close to any of the campaigns please put in a good word for this forum as we hope to have ALL candidates present.
We plan to livestream the event.
NOTE: Due to inclement weather, the Ken Paxton event for Chairman's Circle members has been moved to Wednesday, Jan. 24. We apologize for any inconvenience, but the bright side is that the deadline for registration has been extended to Monday, Jan. 22! Let us know ASAP if you would like to join and attend.
