State Convention Information and Conservative Voter’s Guide

Michigan State Republican Convention

Suburban Showplace
10:00 am Saturday, August 23rd
46100 Grand River Ave | Novi, MI 48374

Delegates and Alternates: Registration opens at 7:00 am
You may also register Friday 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. If possible you are encouraged to pick up your credentials Friday to avoid long lines.

On Saturday, enter through the Diamond Center Entrance. If you didn’t register on Friday, do so in the Opal Room. Delegates will be seated in Districts in front of the stage. Alternates and Guest seating will be behind Delegates.

Last week’s dramatic power shift in the 11 District caucus at the Oakland County Convention shows why becoming a precinct delegate is so important.

If you are not a Delegate or Alternate please consider attending as a guest to learn how a convention works. If you’re a delegate who did not get elected to attend convention or if you were thinking about being a delegate but weren’t sure what it entailed, this is a perfect opportunity to see what happens at a convention.
