Our Party’s Structure
There are more than three million registered Republicans in Pennsylvania who elect our party’s nominees, State and County Committee members, and Delegates to the Republican National Convention. There are over 36,000 registered Republicans in Monroe County.
Registered Republicans elect County Committee & State Committee members in the primary election in which a governor is to be elected. In Monroe County, there are 100 elected County Committee positions (Two for each of the county's 50 precincts); and Three county-wide elected State Committee positions. The County Chairman is elected by the duly elected county committee members for a two-year term within 30 days following each even-number-year primary.
State Committee members and County Chairman serve on the state party and elect a Chairman and Vice Chairman to a four-year term. State party members also elect a National Committeeman and National Committeewoman to represent Pennsylvania, along with the Chairman, on the Republican National Committee.
