Dist. 10 Re00liam Convection Fetmmry 16th, 7 PM Cavalier Amebean " DIST. 10 ENDOR decides the candidates the party will endorse. "People can come whether they are affiliated with the Re- publican Party or not as North Dakota doesn't have an offi- cial voter registration," said Senator Olafson. "It is a unique dynamic." Attendees are also able to volunteer for a chance to be a district delegate at the Repub- lican Convetion. According to Henderson, all districts hav a specific num- ber of delegaes they can send to the state ,,onvention based on the 2010 dection year num- bers. There are 34 spots for Dis- trict 10 and they are given on a first come, first serve basis. If more than 34 people volunteer, there will be a secret ballot election held to determine the final 34. Mo,re information on state delegates can be found at http://www.northdakotagop. org/districtconventions. In addition to Sen. Miller and Sen. Olafson, two incum- bent Dist. 10 legislators will seek re-election and the party's endorsement: Rep. David Monson, Osnabrock, N.D., and Rep. Chuck Damschen, Ham- pden, N.D. As of the date of this article, no other candidates have come forward for the District 10 House or Senate seats. Someone in the audience will offer up a nomination for their candidate of choice. Each candidate will get a chance to Rep. Damschen accept the nomination and give an acceptance speech. If there are more candidates nominated than there are seats available, a secret ballot election will take place. The votes will be tallied and a winner announced. "When you have two in- cumbents running against each other, it's nice to have a leg up," commented Senator Miller when asked what the endorsement would mean to him. "[The endorsement] also Rep. Monson helps differentiate between the candidates," added Sen. Miller. Both Sen. Miller and Sen. Olafson intend to participate in the primary election in June no matter the outcome of the endorsement convention. "We have two really good Senators and we have to pick one to endorse," said Hender- son. "With the redistricting, someone in the state was going to be in this predicament. Guess it was our turn."
