Basic Political Organizational Unit = BPOU
A BPOU is your local level organization where conservatives come together to support candidates and coordinate election related activities. Also known as your local GOP or Republican Party.
There are a lot of opportunities to participate in BPOU activities and events. Every Republican is welcome to attend meetings, events, town halls, and discussion forums.
The Carver County Republican Party Organization is composed of lots of volunteers
- Executive Officers (Chair, Deputy Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary)
- Executive Board (13 Vice Chair members who are elected based on their location in the county, and 2 at-large members).
- Full Committee- 2 officers for every Precinct across Carver County (38 Precincts)
- Delegates- County, Congressional District, State Delegates and State Central Delegates.
- Special Subcommittees
- Volunteers, Neighbors, and Friends
The Carver County Republican Party Constitution and Bylaws outline the structure and basic functions of the party.
We work to keep an educated and engaged electorate.
