drdee -- The primary in Nebraska doesn't county for delegates. We don't even know who will be on the ballot at this point. To vote for the Republican presidential race in the primary you will need to be a registered Republican though.

Delegates are only awarded through the Republican conventions. Right now you have about two hours to get yourself to your local county election official (listed here http://www.sos.ne.gov/elec/clerks.html) and go file to be a delegate to attend the county convention in June. If you are registered Dem or Libertarian then you are out of luck. If you are non-partisan or new you can go take care of that at the same time and become Republican.

This is the ONLY way we will get national delegates is by having people at the county conventions. GO FILE NOW! :) You are NOT obligating yourself to do anything -- only entitling yourself to participate in June.. Tell them you want to file to be a delegate for the Republican convention. We'll fill you in on the rest later.

What are you waiting for? TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO FILE!
