I just discovered that in my state you must be a registered Republican for the six months preceding your nomination as a delegate in order to be eligible to be a delegate to the National Convention.

It is important that Ron Paul supporters who are not already registered Republicans register immediately, to allow for the most pre-delegate selection time to elapse.

Please check out your state's requirements for becoming a delegate for the Republican Party:

Once you've found out the general rules for your state's Republican Party, check into further details via the state party's bylaws and the laws of your state.

Excellent observation.

Good info here too:

Also, in some states, one can be an independent to vote in the primary BUT we would still want Ron Paul supporters to register as Republican in order to sign ballot petitions to put Dr. Paul (or more accurately, his slate of delegate candidates) on the ballot.

Oh, just so we all get the election law lingo down, "delegates" are chose by the voters (generally) from among the "delegate candidates" pledged to each presidential candidate.
