Welcome to the Caldwell County Republican Party website!
WHO are Caldwell County Republicans?
The Caldwell County Republican Party consists of the voters who participate in the Caldwell County (Texas) Republican Primary Election or Republican Primary Runoff Election in biennial years. Membership may also be obtained by affiliation as required by the Texas Election Code, Sections 162.007, 162.008, and 162.009.
WHERE and WHEN do Caldwell County Republicans meet??
The County Executive Committee meets once a month, on second Thursdays, at the Scott Annex, 1403 Blackjack, in Lockhart at 7:00 p.m. Meetings are open to the public, although only CEC members are allowed to speak and participate in the meeting.
Caldwell County Republicans are usually at the Luling Watermelon Thump Parade and at the Watermelon Thump Nacho Booth, the Chisholm Trail Parade, the Cinco de Mayo Festival, the Diez Y Seis celebration, the Martindale July 4th parade, and many other local community activites. We also have an annual fundraising Liberty Dinner.
WHAT do Caldwell County Republicans do?
The County Executive Committee establishes the general policy of the Caldwell County Republican Party, subject to the direction of the biennial County Convention.
We represent the Republican Party of Caldwell County, the State of Texas, and the United States, articulating the principles and positions of the Republican Party Platform and promoting Republican candidates.
We cooperate in carrying out programs initiated by the Republican Party of Texas, including, but not limited to:
1. Conduct a Republican Primary in as many election precincts within the county as practicable, but at a minimum, having a voting location in each County Commissioner’s Precinct; and
2. Organize a coordinated effort, including Get-Out-The-Vote, preceding each General Election, and to publicize the Party’s candidates.
HOW can I help the Party?
We need conservative, hard-working Precinct Chairs in every Precinct in the County. If your precinct has no chairman, perhaps you should consider becoming a Precinct Chairman. You can file for Precinct Chairman for the next Primary. If you missed the deadline, the County Executive Committee can appoint you to fill the vacancy if they have a 50% quorum at their meeting. Contact the County Chairman for more information.
Perhaps you should consider running for office. If you're thinking about it, contact the County Chairman. We need good, conservative Republicans in every office at every level.
Would you volunteer? We need helping hands when we have the GOP HQ open during election years, and for local parades, festivals, fundraisers, and other events.
Would you serve on a committee? We have several committee structures in place to help support the Party, and you do not have to be a Precinct Chair to serve. Are you willing to serve on the Gala Committee, the Special Events Committee, or the Finance Committee? Please contact the County Chair.
We always need donations. We appreciate all contributions. Keep in mind that we are not a tax-deductible charity, and we cannot accept corporate checks. We also need donations of items for our annual silent and live auctions.
