We, the Executive Committee of the Iron County Republican Party, do our best to keep this site up to date with all the local political events. However, we know that there are many more events that do not get posted either because we are not aware of them or we don't get a chance to post. We encourage anyone reading this post to help us by posting relevant local political events to keep us all informed and aware of what is going on in the community.

All submissions will be reviewed before being posted to the website to ensure no inappropriate content is posted.
The coming year promises to be one of great interest, challenges, healthy debate, entertaining and informative conventions and real politics. Please let us, the Executive Committee, know of your interest in meeting our goal of advocating and protecting our Utah Caucus system and interest and participation in that process. We will have several events to put on and will need lots of help. Let us know if you want to volunteer. We look forward to the coming year.
