One year to go

Yesterday, Nov. 3, marked one year to the day for the 2020 General Election. There will be a lot of work between now and then for your Boone County Republican Central Committee to complete. This work includes hosting fundraisers, recruiting candidates, preparing for the Boone County Republican Caucus, get-out-the-vote efforts and more for us to re-elect President Trump and Vice-President Pence, secure victories for our statewide candidates, and continue to grow the GOP in Boone County with re-election and first-time wins.

Want to get involved to help secure those victories? Currently, there are several vacancies on the Boone County Republican Central Committee that can be filled immediately instead of waiting until committee reorganization next August. This is one of the best ways to stay informed about upcoming volunteer opportunities, help identify candidates and create new Republican contacts at the local and state levels. Your financial contributions will also help us achieve our goals of opening an election headquarters to host events to help all Boone County Republican candidates and volunteers.
