The 2024 Klickitat County Republican "Pooled" Precinct Caucuses will be held Saturday, January 13, from 10 AM to Noon in Klickitat County. Join us for coffee, doughnuts, and updates.

Vote In Person in a "straw poll" for a 2024 Republican Party Presidential Nominee and other State Level and Federal offices, and make your voice heard!


The Precinct Caucuses are vitally important community gathering meetings that only happen once every 4 years. DO NOT MISS THEM.


The caucuses are your opportunity to participate with other like-minded community residents. This is where GOP activists, supporters and members of the community discuss pertinent political issues, the Republican Platform, vote for their preference for U.S. President, Submit Resolutions and elect Delegates and Alternates to the County Convention.


If you are a Republican PCO,the Precinct Caucus is a must to attend to help organize! This is your duty as a PCO! If you would like more information about what a PCO is and does, visit www.KlickitatCountyRepublicans.org for more information or email info@klickitatcountyrepubicans.org.

 

BALLOT COLLECTION AND BALLOT PROTECTION IS ABSOLUTELY VITAL!

The RNC, WSRP, and WA State County GOP parties are focusing on the "Electoral Process" now more than ever before. For years Republicans have been focused on banning ballot harvesting. That strategy has not worked and now Republicans are changing course. State law does not address whether someone may or may not return mail-in ballots on behalf of voters. However, it is allowed and for all intents and purposes legal.


Democrats have been doing it in WA State and using it to their advantage for decades. Ballot harvesting is where Dems (most often) hire third parties to go out and pick up ballots where Democrat voters are registered to live. This gives Dems a huge advantage regarding a large portion of their “Harvested” voter base.

Some voters are apathetic because they don’t feel like putting in the effort to vote, or because it is simply not a priority. Some voters have given up hope because they believe their vote doesn’t count, and nothing seems to change to make life better. So, when someone they trust comes to their door to get their ballot, they give it to them.


Advantages of in-person, hand-collecting of voters’ ballots: 1) Opportunity to make a face to face voter contact, 2) Can verify legitimate voters at the address on record for enhanced ballot security, 3) Allows the chance to find illegal registered voters at the address for voter challenges to help auditors clean the voter rolls, and 4) thanking them for participating in restoring the USA to the Democratic Republic we all cherish!


Stay tuned for more information on maximizing legal ballot returns and protection.

 

You may have seen the Initiatives at the County events this summer or around town. The goal is to get 400,000 signatures statewide by December 31, 2023. They can be found at Gorge Ink in White Salmon. More locations coming soon or email us at info@klickitatcountyrepublicans.org.

THE INITIATIVES: Good Government Policy and Simple Solutions.

I-2113: REASONABLE POLICE PURSUIT

This measure would remove certain restrictions on when peace officers may engage in vehicular pursuits. Such pursuits would be allowed when the officer has a "reasonable suspicion" a person has violated the law, pursuit is necessary to identify or apprehend the person, the person poses a threat to the safety of others, and those safety risks are greater than those of the pursuit.

I-2111: NO STATE INCOME TAX

This measure would prohibit the state, counties, cities, and other local jurisdictions from imposing or collecting income taxes, defined as having the same meaning as “gross income” in the Internal Revenue Code.

I-2109: REPEAL THE CAPITAL GAINS TAX

This measure would repeal an excise tax imposed on the sale or exchange of certain long-term capital assets by individuals who have annual capital gains of over $250,000.

I-2081: PARENTAL NOTIFICATION

This measure would allow parents and guardians of public-school children to review instructional materials and inspect student records, including health and disciplinary records, upon request.

It would require public schools to provide parents and guardians with certain notifications, including: medical services given and when students are taken off campus; access to calendars and certain policies; written notice and opportunities to opt students out of comprehensive sexual-health education; answering certain surveys or assignments.

I-2117: STOP THE HIDDEN GAS TAX

This measure would prohibit state agencies from imposing any type of Carbon Tax credit trading and repeal Cap & Invest program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It also REPEALS the wretched cap-and-trade tax scheme which doesn't do anything to stop pollution or greenhouse gasses and driven gasoline and diesel prices up $1/gallon. It is a regressive tax that hurts working families harder than rich people.

I-2124: OPT OUT OF STATE-RUN LONG TERM CARE COVERAGE

This measure will allow working Washingtonians to opt out of the state government's insolvent "long-term care" tax scheme. It's an unpopular and expensive Democrat deduction out of working people's paychecks, benefit is minimal, and people can't afford it. While most workers must pay for it, many won't be eligible to receive it. It disproportionately hurts lower income individuals, the benefit won't cover many long-term care needs, and lots of people won't qualify even after paying into the program for years.


All of these initiatives have until the end of December to gather the needed signatures to qualify for the Nov 2024 general election ballot. More details here: https://letsgowashington.com

 

D'nesh D'Souza and Dan Bongino combined their talents to produce a film about the overreach of government power during the pandemic. The film willl be out in limited theaters on October 23rd and October 25th. It is showing in Portland at the Cinemark Century Clackams Town Center. As soon as it is available to be streamed, we will publish that information.

 

FYI: Constitution Day. Our Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787, in Philadelphia, PA. There are a lot of great books about the Signers of the Constitution and the process. It was a contentious process that took place over 4 months, but ultimately it was signed and became official once 9 of the 13 States ratified it. More information can be found here: https://constitutionus.com

 

Rep. Dan Newhouse will be in Klickitat County October 2nd. Please RSVP to the contact below if you would like to attend.

(This posting is for informational purposes. This does not imply endorsement or support. The KCR will post events related to Elected Officials/Candidates in order to ensure our Voters are informed and educated.)
