The Voter Registration and Elections Office has mailed the County Voter Information Guide for the March 5, 2024, Presidential Primary Election to Sacramento County registered voters. Voters can expect to start receiving their ballots on February 5th. If you have questions about the candidates, call our Voter Help Line at (916) 822-5618.

Central Committee Election

We are so pleased that so many candidates filed to run for Central Committee! This means that our hard work is paying off and people see the value in serving.

The Central Committee has NOT endorsed in these races, so if you see materials that imply support from the Sacramento County Republican Party, please let us know! They are not authorized to use the SacCountyGOP logo, even if they are a Committee Member/Alternate.

Congrats to the candidates who qualified in Districts 1, 2, and 5. Since there were an equal or lesser number of candidates to seats, all are deemed elected and will not be on the ballot. They will take office at the January 2025 Organizing Meeting. Those include:

District 1: Steve Duvernay, Jeffrey Flanagan, and Sadie Foster
District 2: Brenda Bennett, Robert Blymyer, Gabrielle Ingram, and Brian Johnston
District 5: Carl Brickey, Bill Cardoza, Carol Fogle, Paul Johanneson, Danielle Jolliffe, Kimberly Kennedy-Woods, Betsy Mahan, and Bradley Orr

Candidates will compete for eight seats in District 3 and nine seats in District 4. Voters in those Supervisor districts will have the opportunity to vote in March.

Background:

All counties organize their Central Committee elections a little differently, but all are guided by the Election Code as well as the CAGOP’s requirement that elections take place.

  • Our districts use Board of Supervisors boundaries.
  • Every four years, the number of seats in each district is determined based on Republican registration. In 2024, we expect Sac County Elections to confirm there will be 4 seats in District 1, 4 seats in District 2, 8 seats in District 3, 9 seats in District 4, and 8 seats in District 5.
  • You can look up the Supervisor District lines on our website.
  • Your name will only appear on the March 2024 ballot if there are more candidates than seats in your district.
  • Candidates for Central Committee will not have access to GOP Database or Campaign Sidekick. We suggest you purchase a copy of the Voter Rolls that include names and contact info for all Republicans in your supervisor district. The cost is $80.
  • The current Central Committee will not be making endorsements, but individual Members may do so as long as they don’t infer it is a Committee endorsement.

Join the 1776 Donor Club

SacCountyGOP is an all-volunteer run operation with a headquarters and an active community presence. The only way we can sustain this program is to rely on donations from individuals and local organizations.

Contrary to popular belief, we do NOT receive funds from the state or national Republican Party, or any candidates. So when you donate to the RNC, President Trump, or the CAGOP, that does not trickle down to us.

We have a donor program called the 1776 Club where members make monthly or quarterly online donations to help cover our operational costs such as rent, printing, and fees for booths at community events. Club members receive discounts on Watch Parties and other special events.

As mentioned above, no one receives a salary at SacCountyGOP, and too often, our volunteers are the ones who also donate money to keep the lights on. Please join them and sign up online for a recurring donation. Knowing we can depend on that regular contribution helps us plan for the next election.

Learn more and sign up here.

Volunteer

It’s a lot of fun, and so rewarding to volunteer at SacCountyGOP. We will train you to walk, phone, and greet voters who will support our Republican candidates in the next election.

We will be gearing up for the 2024 Election by participating in the County and State Fairs, and community events in Fair Oaks, Elk Grove, Citrus Heights, and Carmichael. Let us know if there is a community event in your area that we should visit. Email Barbara@SacCountyGOP.com

Voting for a Republican in the Presidential Primary:

If you are not registered with a qualified political party, you are a “No Party Preference” (NPP) voter and will receive a ballot without presidential candidates.

If you are a NPP voter and want to vote for a presidential candidate in the Republican Party, you must re-register Republican by February 19th.

The County Registrar of Voters is mailing crossover cards to NPP voters beginning December 11th. If you receive the card asking if you’d like to vote in the Presidential Primary, then you are not currently registered as a Republican! Check your status at this link.

If you are a NPP voter and want to vote for a presidential candidate, you may request a ballot for a party that allows crossover voting for the Primary Election only. The American Independent, Democrat, and Libertarian Parties allow for crossover voting. ​​Voters that “crossover” are not re-registered with this party. After the election you will still be registered as NPP.

Register Republican at this link!  After the Feb. 19 deadline, you may register and vote a Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) ballot at the County Elections office or any Vote Center. Vote Centers open beginning Saturday, February 24, 2024.
