From Precinct to County to Congressional District
In February and March, I attended my precinct meeting and the DeKalb County Convention for the GOP. On Saturday, April 18, I attended the 4th Congressional District Meeting, which included delegates from DeKalb, Gwinnett, and Rockdale. I'm still not sure what the purpose is of each step, other than electing delegates to go to the next level, including to the Georgia GOP convention in May. I did find the "secret" of the district meeting when I read the bylaws. During presidential election years, delegates to the national convention are elected during this meeting.
