Chelle Adkins from the State Central Committee talked about some new bylaws recently adopted by the state committee: The Young Republicans organization has been added to their auxiliary groups; emergency meetings for their committee can be called by the chair, co-chair or five members of the committee with just a 12 hour notice instead of ten days; only registered Republicans or invited guests can attend State Central Committee meetings to avoid disruptions. The Election Integrity Team which helps keep elections fair and honest is looking for poll watchers and workers as well as encouraging those in the legal profession to get involved. Craig Johnson from Buchanan County will be running for State House in his new district. He is currently a State Senator.
