The Republican meeting will be held Saturday, March 22, at a time and place to be determined by the county GOP’s Executive Committee at the committee’s Feb. 8 meeting, said county Republican Chairman Cynthia Ridgeway.
The GOP will likely hold precinct conventions on election night to elect delegates to the county convention, she said.
The Democratic county convention is set for 2 p.m. March 22 at the Newsom Law Office at 203 W. Tyler (just off the downtown Gilmer square’s southwestern corner), announced county Democratic Chairman Dan Miles Jr.
Anyone who votes in the March 4 Democratic primary is eligible to be a delegate to that convention, which will elect the county delegation to the party’s state convention, scheduled for June in Dallas, Miles said. The Democrats will not hold election-night precinct conventions as they did in the past.
The Libertarian county convention is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, at La Finca Mexican Restaurant on Warren Avenue in Gilmer, announced county Libertarian Chairman Vance Lowry.
Anyone who did not vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries held that day may participate in the Libertarian convention.
It is expected to nominate Peggy LaGrone for Upshur County Clerk to run in the November general election against Terri Ross, who is unopposed for the Republican nomination in the GOP primary.
