What is the 2024 State Convention?
The State Convention is a pivotal event in the political calendar of the Washington State Republican Party. It’s a significant gathering of Party delegates from across the state, who come together to define the Party’s platform, elect Party leadership, elect national delegates, presidential electors, and now also endorse candidates for statewide and federal offices.
Delegates at the State Convention are entrusted with multiple responsibilities. They deliberate and vote on a range of issues crucial to the direction and success of our Party. These discussions shape our Party’s policies and priorities across a spectrum of issues that face our state and country.
A new, and essential, role of the delegates at the State Convention is to endorse candidates for significant positions such as Governor, U.S. Senate, Congress, and other statewide offices. Candidates who earn an endorsement at the State Convention receive the comprehensive backing, resources, and infrastructure of the Washington State Republican Party, along with our partner organizations.
In addition, the State Convention is responsible for selecting delegates to represent Washington State at the National Convention. These chosen individuals carry the collective voice of our Party to the national stage, playing an integral role in selecting our Party’s Presidential nominee.
At its core, the State Convention is about unity. It’s about bringing together diverse voices under shared principles and goals. It’s about rallying behind our endorsed candidates and working collectively to secure Republican victories in the forthcoming elections. It’s about signaling to Republicans across Washington State that unity – in our time, donations, and votes – is our path to victory in 2024 and beyond.

Mark your calendars! The road to the 2024 elections is filled with pivotal events, providing opportunities for every member of the Washington State Republican Party to engage, participate, and make a difference. Here are the key dates you need to know:
Precinct Caucuses – January 13, 2024: Precinct caucuses are the grassroots level of our political process. This is your first opportunity to get involved in the 2024 election cycle. Meet your Republican neighbors, discuss Party platform, and elect delegates to the County Conventions. Please contact your county party to get involved! More alerts and notifications will inform you as we get closer to the date of our precinct caucuses.
County Conventions – January 20 – March 16, 2024 (exact dates to be determined by individual counties): Elected delegates from the precinct caucuses will gather at their respective County Conventions. Here, they will elect delegates to the State Convention and address county-specific issues.

National Convention – July 15-18, 2024: Chosen delegates will then attend the National Convention, where they will participate in the selection of the Party’s Presidential nominee, helping shape the national platform, and strategizing for the General Election.
