Welcome to the web home of the Arlington County Republican Committee (Arlington GOP). We are the committee that serves as the local organizational unit of the Republican Party in Arlington, Virginia.
2018 Arlington GOP Membership & Eighth Congressional Republican District Convention
Arlington GOP will soon be reconstituted and we encourage you to become a member of the new committee. It's a great way to get involved in local Republican politics, meet fellow Republicans, and help our candidates.
You can also become a delegate to the Eighth Congressional District Republican Committee Convention on April 28. Delegates will elect a Republican nominee for the Eighth Congressional District for the U.S. House of Representatives and a new chairman of the Eighth District Committee.
Arlington GOP adopted a call (online here) at its January 28 meeting establishing the process for electing new committee members, Eighth District Convention delegates, and a new ACRC chairman.
The filing deadline for ACRC chairman candidates is February 15.
The filing deadline for ACRC membership and Eighth District Convention delegate candidates is February 27 by mail or in-person at the February 28 ACRC meeting. All membership and convention delegate candidates must file the declaration form that can be downloaded here.
Our platform on local issues can be found here.
Arlington GOP is the official local unit organization of the Republican Party in Arlington County. Arlington GOP nominates Republican candidates for local office and supports Republican candidates for office at all levels of government.
