Changes to the Tennessee Republican Party Bylaws and Rules that were amended August 13, 2016 by vote of the State Executive Committee Members of the Tennessee Republican Party.

The intent of these changes were to strengthen the requirements for all officers serving on a county party’s executive committee and to be applied across the entire state during the county party reorganizations in 2017. Therefore these changes took effect immediately, and the requirements set forth by the Tennessee Republican Party Bylaws and Rules for qualification to serve as Chairman or other county party office will supersede any requirements listed in county party bylaws. Below are the new requirements in Article VIII, Section 5 of the TRP Bylaws.

Article VIII

Section 5. The following shall be requirements for candidacy to county party leadership:

A. For a County Party Chairman and other officers as defined in the County Party bylaws:

1. Any individual who is actively involved in the Tennessee Republican Party, his County Republican Party, or any recognized auxiliary organization of either; and resides and is registered to vote in said county; and

2. Any individual who has voted in the last three Republican primaries in his county of residence during those primary elections. Younger Republicans who may not have been of legal age for three primary elections must obtain approval from the State Chairman.

B. For any other County Party leadership position (including being elected as a County Convention Delegate):

1. Any individual who has voted in at least two of the last four Republican primaries in his county of residence during those primary elections. Younger Republicans who may not have been of legal age for four primary elections must obtain approval from the State Chairman;and either

2. Any individual who is actively involved in the Tennessee Republican Party, his County Republican Party, or any recognized auxiliary organization of either; and resides and is registered to vote in said county; or

3. Any individual who is vouched for in writing to the satisfaction of the State Chairman as a bona fide Republican, such as by an officer of the TRP, a member of the SEC, or CEC of the County where the individual resides. The State Chairman may require additional verification that the individual in question is indeed a bona fide Republican, and shall have final authority to make the determination.

CONGRATULATIONS to our GOP candidates on their November 8 Victory!
