The state convention, chaired by Linda Daves, will be held Friday, June 1, through Sunday, June 3, at the Charlotte Convention Center.
Owen said that all Moore County Republicans are encouraged to attend their precinct meetings, when officers and convention delegates will be elected. He said an appropriate number of delegates and alternates must be determined at these meetings.
The allowed number of delegates and alternates is based on a percentage of registered voters in the precinct. That means one for every 100 registered voters plus one for being an organized precinct with elected officers.
