Welcome to the Marion County GOP

Capitol dome

Marion County is the home of Oregon's beautiful capitol, Salem, and is a hub for activity both political and cultural. As Marion County is the hub of Oregon, so too is this website the hub of Marion County.

We believe that the aim of politics is to serve the community by providing them with choices. From policy to leadership, the American system works because the citizens - the voters - are given a choice. Our goal is to present you, as voters, with a viable choice that meets your needs as citizens. 

Please feel free to drop by our suggestion box and let us know what you'd like to see - be it from our party organization, to public legislature, or even an upcoming event you'd like to attend; we'll listen.

Thank you for reading! Welcome to Marion County.

    The Ike Box in Salem, OR

    Aug 2017 Central Committee Meeting

    NOTE: The Ike Box closes at 8pm in the summer so the meeting will start promptly at 6pm

    Fellow Republicans,

    Our August 17th meeting will be an important one if you want to have an influence on the Platform of the Oregon Republican Party. For those who are unaware, the Platform is essentially the document outlining our position as Republicans on core issues, essentially our values statement. These are divided into sections called planks.

    Every 2 years a delegation from each county gathers together to consider changes to our Platform document. Each delegation includes both your elected delegates, and a certain number of bonus delegates based on the population of the county. In Marion County, we get to send an additional 11 Bonus delegates to our 6 elected ones. At our August 17 meeting, we will have an election for these bonus delegates and also for 11 alternates.

    To qualify, you must have been a registered Republican for at least 180 days. Being an elected or appointed Precinct Committee Person is desirable (they are the body who gets to vote on these bonus delegates) but not required. This is a great way to have a short term but measurable impact on the direction of the party. Our deadline for reporting the Marion County delegation members to the Platform Convention is September 1st

    There are costs involved. Registration is $145 for the 3-day event and as it is in Bend, hotel accommodations for a minimum of 2 nights (if you want to attend the Thursday Evening events) should be considered. The party will have a discounted rate onsite through the venue (the River House) for $105 per night + tax.
