To: Elbert County Republicans – Delegates & Alternates to County Assembly;
In response to health concerns of the COVID-19 and emergency declarations that prevent public gatherings, the Elbert County Republicans Executive Committee have developed a revised plan to conduct County Assembly planned for Saturday, March 28. The plan is consistent with enabling legislation and the guidance from the Colorado Republican Party.
County Assembly will be conducted as planned at 12:00 noon on Saturday, March 28. The Assembly will be an online (webinar) format with a secure text format for voting. The quorum requirement of delegates has been waived and we will not need alternates and proxy delegates will not be allowed.
Delegates will be receiving a secure web-based meeting invitation (Webex) via email on Tuesday, March 24. Voting instructions will be provided at the start of the Assembly. We are confident in the technology that will be used and feel that we will have a successful Assembly.
Provided for your information are the Standing Agenda & Rules, Resolutions, draft Party Platform, and revised Meeting Call.
We thank you for your patience, understanding, and support. We will continue to be in contact so as to have a very successful Assembly. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us as shown below.

To: Elbert County Republican – Delegate/Alternates to County Assembly;
The Elbert County Republicans are closely monitoring the health concerns and impacts of Covid-19 as it relates to plans for County Assembly. The issue is very fluid. The Governor has issued executive orders and the Colorado Department of Public Health has issued a Public Health Order.
A Special Meeting of the Colorado Republican State Central Committee is planned for 12:00 noon on Friday. The intent of the meeting is to consider and approve emergency amendments to the Colorado Republican Committee bylaws to address COVID-19 and resulting changes to their assembly process. We expect further guidance to be provided at that time.
We are in the process of making alternative plans for County Assembly as we do not anticipate being allowed to have a large gathering at the Elbert County Fairgrounds. A number of options are being considered, including an online meeting with ballot drop offs. We will provide more specifics when made available.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, the Colorado Department of Public Health also issued a public health order prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people. Gatherings include community, civic, public, leisure, faith-based events, sporting events with spectators, concerts, conventions, fundraisers, parades, fairs, festivals or any similar event that brings more than 10 people together.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

This notice is for Delegates and Alternates to ALL assemblies. We will update as conditions change. Contained in this notice you will find:
- A statement from Elbert County Republicans regarding the effects of COVID-19 on County Assembly.
- The County Assembly Call.
- Information we have regarding State Assembly and the Higher Assemblies.
- We will update via this email address as we get updates.
To: Delegates/Alternates, Elbert County Republican - County Assembly;
Provided below is an update on plans for County Assembly in light of the health concerns of COVID-19, declarations by Governor Polis, and guidance from Colorado Republican State Party. The situation will continue to evolve and we will provide updates when helpful.
Bottom Line: We are moving forward with plans for County Assembly on Saturday, March 28. If we stay under 250 attendees we are under the guideline restriction of special arrangements. We have 145 delegates and 33 alternates. So, if everyone shows and we have 25 guests, etc., that would put us at 203. The quorum needed is 74.
We ask the following of delegates and alternates:
1. If you are susceptible to sickness, please stay home.
2. If you have flu like symptoms or have been exposed to sickness, please stay home.
3. If you attend and are coughing or noticeably sick, we will ask you to go home.
If you are NOT planning to attend, please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org
The ECR Executive Committee is meeting on Monday, March 16, to continue the planning of County Assembly and to make changes as necessary.
Last evening (Friday, March 13) there was an "all hands" State Central Committee conference call led by State Party Chairman Ken Buck. We were told the following:
1. Gov. Polis has restricted all meetings state wide to 250 and fewer people.
2. The Colorado State Legislature is meeting this weekend to pass legislation to address the effect it has on our upcoming State and District Assemblies. The bill being considered has been changing continuously over the last few days but the working bill identifier is: HB2020-1359.
3. This legislation which was outlined by our party attorney, Chris Murphy, is to grant the parties and assembly executive committees broad latitude to amend processes and bylaws to accommodate these unusual circumstances. Those changes might include:
a. If required, holding meetings in a different time/place/method.
b. Alternative credentialing processes.
c. Waiving normal proxy rules to allow persons who may be in some danger (elder delegates or those with underlying medical issues) to vote via proxy.
d. Waiving bylaws in order to accommodate the rapidly developing and unpredictable nature of the events.
e. Any changes implemented with this legislation will by statute expire on December 31, 2020.
4. State Party has advised the following: local District meetings that are expected to be less than 250 persons in number will be held as planned.
5. There will be a Special State Party Central Committee meeting on Friday, March 20 at a location as yet undecided. It will be subject to the following:
a. Must be limited to under 250 persons.
b. Because of the number limit, only one representative per county will be attending.
c. Other voting members of the State Central Committee from each county will be voting or participating via proxy.
d. The State Party Assembly for this election cycle will be evaluated and designed at this meeting based upon the status of events as of that date.
It is likely that the Governor will announce additional changes next week, as early as Monday.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through this together.

Have you ever heard our local Elbert County Democrats say "party doesn't matter"? Perhaps you heard their latest candidate for Sheriff saying this (by the way, he is now the Elbert County Democrat Vice Chair) or perhaps you see the liberals running a local "citizen" page saying it in comments as they try to tear our Republican officials down.
Well, Elbert County, this is who your Elbert County Democrats are:
