Missouri GOP Approved To Have Conventions By Mail

Local News Thursday, April 30th, 2020

JEFFERSON CITY—The Executive Committee of the Republican National Committee on Thursday approved the Missouri GOP’s request to hold our Republican Congressional District Conventions by mail, rather than in-person as originally planned.

“While many state and local leaders hope to begin opening Missouri in the coming weeks, it is clear that holding in-person gatherings of hundreds of people would be inadvisable in the month of May,” said Kay Hoflander, Chair of the Missouri Republican Party. “In the interest of the health and safety of our delegates and their families, we believe it is prudent to hold our Congressional District Conventions by mail.”

The Missouri Republican Congressional District Conventions are held in each of Missouri’s eight congressional districts to elect three Republican National Convention delegates and three Republican National Convention alternates, as well as selecting one presidential elector. Delegates and alternates to the Congressional District Conventions were elected by county Republican central committees on April 4.

Results of the Congressional District Conventions are expected to be announced by May 30.
