OK, you've taken the plunge, so what's next? Well, first off, we want to thank you for joining us and committing your support to the Republican Party of Polk County. Take a few minutes to browse through the other pages of our site and get to know us. There's a lot of good information here about our organization, upcoming events, our affiliated local clubs and Republican candidates for office.
After that, your next step should be to contact the Supervisor of Elections office and register as a new voter, or change your party affiliation. This link will take you straight to the online voter registration form on their website. As of August 2016, there are about 2,000 more registered Democrats in Polk County than there are registered Republicans, but we're closing the gap fast. In fact, since the beginning of 2016, Republicans have gained a majority in ten Florida counties!
Once you've finished with that, you'll be well on your way to being a card-carrying Republican. Now you can get to the good stuff! If you use social media, login to your account(s), then come find us on Facebook or Twitter. You can also visit us in person at our GOP office located on South Florida Avenue in Lakeland. Feel free to join us for our monthly meetings of the Polk County Republican Executive Committee (REC). You can get all the details about those meetings here.
Now, normally, we would expect you to ease into your new persona as a Republican supporter...you know, take some time to get to know a few people and see what opportunities are available. But we all know that the November general elections will be taking place in a matter of weeks!
If you're ready to jump in with both feet and do whatever it takes to promote our Republican candidates, well please, head straight over to our Volunteer page and sign up NOW! You can be certain there's something you can do to help our cause.
Finally, if you're unable to volunteer, please consider making a donation to our organization. Every penny of grassroots donations helps us build and maintain our efforts to put a Republican back in the White House again, and to promote candidates at the state and local level. Secure, online donations can be made with a credit card on a one-time or recurring (monthly) basis, and we also accept checks by mail.
