In 2018 the state party chair chose the QPP path for the party, so there are 3 ways you can get your name on the Republican Party’s Primary Ballot. (Normally the SCC would make the decision of RPP or QPP, but the current chair improperly didn’t allow them to make the decision for this election cycle.)

Candidate Options:

    • Going through the party’s caucus/convention system.  (The party’s preferred path.)
    • Gathering signatures from Republicans living within the district or county you are running in.
    • Both C/C and gathering signatures.

No matter which option you choose, you are required to fill out a platform support disclosure and file it with the party. Click here for the form.  Email it to when you have completed it.

Note: The party does not sanction the signature path or the dual path.  The party’s preferred path is the caucus/convention system.  The signature path was forced on the party by the state legislature and a group of wealthy individuals.   The cost of elections to the party and to the candidate have increased substantially due to the nature of the signature path.  The party has filed a lawsuit against the state for this violation of our Constitutionally protected right of association.
