This is the page for charting a course of action for winning the nomination in Oregon. Please use the index below to find your county.
Below, I have put the links to statewide Oregon Ron Paul Groups, helpful websites, etc. These are STATEWIDE Ron Paul resources:
Oregonians for Ron Paul
Oregonians for Ron Paul Meetup Group
Oregon Students for Ron Paul Meetup
Straight from the Ron Paul Forum:
"Delegates to the Republican National Convention on September 1-4, 2008 will formally elect the next Republican presidential nominee (with great fanfare, funny hats, and state-saluting speeches).
There will be two kinds of delegates at the convention. The unelected "superdelegates" or "bonus" delegates are chosen ex officio by nature of being an incumbent Republican Governor or other Federal official (Congressman or Senator) or high party official (state party chairman). The voters choose the elected delegates to the convention (by way of state party primaries, caucuses, conventions or meetings) from among the delegate candidate slates chosen by the presidential aspirants. Under NRC by-laws, the primary election calendar must be finalized by September, 2007. http://www.gop.com/About/AboutRead.aspx?AboutType=4
The purpose of the primaries, caucuses, etc., is to choose the elected delegates to the presidential nominating convention. Voters indirectly pick their presidential nominee by directly picking their nominee's slate (or team) of delegates. We vote to choose among the competing slates of "delegate candidates" (and alternate delegate candidates) representing their respective presidential candidates. The winner of the vote is selected as the delegate."
Here is an EXCELLENT site on the basics of how to become a delegate: http://www3.webng.com/ronpaul/becomedelegate.html
If you want to become a delegate, it's wise to know about the United States Electoral College: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Electoral_College
Here's a great site that will give you an overview of the state-by-state process http://www3.webng.com/ronpaul/delegatestates.html -and- if you select OREGON from that site it leads you to the ORP's Bylaws page which has the EXACT procedure for the state of Oregon: http://www.orgop.org/About/Default.aspx?SectionId=504
Oregon has five Congressional Districts. Here is a map in *.pdf format. (You'll need Adobe reader to open this map.)
Here is a link to the Oregon Secretary of State Elections Division, Oregon District Maps. You'll have to select your State House or Senate district...but it can give it to you as a *.jpg (a picture) or as a *.pdf. http://www.sos.state.or.us/elections/other.info/maps.html
I'll put each county's precinct PCP map in the respective county's area!
