    The ballot for the Republican Presidential Preferential Primary in Mississippi
    shall contain the names of the candidates for the Republican nomination for President
    determined by the State Executive Committee of the Mississippi Republican Party
    according to law, and the voters shall be given the right to express a preference for one
    candidate only. The names of the candidates for Vice President shall not appear on the
    ballot, and the names of the candidates for delegates and alternate delegates to the
    Republican National Convention shall not appear on the ballot.

    Rule Three

    Convention shall be selected at the Republican State Convention pursuant to these Rules.

    Rule Five
    The members of the Republican National Committee shall not be bound to any
    Presidential candidate.

    Rule Six
    At least thirty (30) days in advance of the Republican State Convention, each
    candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States who may be
    entitled to the election of delegates to the Republican National Convention bound to him
    by the presidential preferential primary pursuant to these Rules shall designate in writing,

    Chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party at least ten days prior to the day of the
    State Convention a written declaration of candidacy for delegate or alternate delegate to
    the Republican National Convention, and shall plainly and forthrightly state which
    candidate that person will be bound to support on the floor of the Republican National
    Convention pursuant to these Rules. No person not so qualifying shall be eligible to seek
    election as a delegate or alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention. The
    State Chairman shall immediately inform the Floor Representative of each presidential

    No person shall be qualified to seek election as delegate or alternate delegate to
    the Republican National Convention unless and until that person shall have made an
    affidavit upon oath under penalty of perjury, in a form to be provided by the State

    bound to vote at the Republican National Convention for the candidate for the
    Republican Nomination as President of the United States designated by such person on
    all ballots until released by said candidate publicly or in writing; and (d) will execute and
    deliver such Waiver of Process, Entry of Appearance, Consent and Undertaking as may
    be necessary, in the opinion of the General Counsel of the Mississippi Republican Party,
    to make such oath and commitment fully binding and enforceable in a court of competent
    jurisdiction.

    Rule Nine
    Each delegate (and alternate delegate, if voting as a delegate) to the Republican
    National Convention allocated to the candidates pursuant to the Republican Presidential
    Preferential Primary and elected by the District Caucuses and the whole body of the
    Republican State Convention pursuant to the Rules shall be bound and constrained to the
    vote for the candidate designated by him or her prior to seeking election as delegate or
    alternate delegate pursuant to these Rules until released publicly or in writing by the
    presidential candidate to who he or she is bound. Nay failure, attempt or threat to violate
    these Rules and fail to vote as designated, bound and constrained shall amount to
    irreparable harm so that any court of competent jurisdiction within Mississippi or at the
    venue of the Republican National Convention may, with or without notice, issue such
    temporary restraining orders or injunctive decrees, both mandatory and prohibitory, as
    may be necessary to enforce the Rules.

    National Convention may be required to execute and deliver, in a form required by the
    General Counsel of the Mississippi Republican Party, a Waiver of Process, Entry of
    Appearance and Consent to Personal Jurisdiction in the Chancery Court of the First
    Judicial District in Hinds County, Mississippi, for the purposes of legal proceedings
    which may be necessary for enforcement of these Rules and the solemn commitment to
    be bound and constrained to vote as designated for the candidate to whom delegates and
    alternate delegates have been allocated by the Republican Presidential Preferential
    Primary pursuant to the Rules.

    Rule Eleven
    The Floor Representative or Deputy Floor Representative of each candidate for
    President may, upon the floor of the State Convention or at the District Caucus, speak for
    not more than two minutes in opposition to or in support of candidates for delegate or
    alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention who have designated the
    presidential candidate represented by that Floor Representative as the candidate to whom
    they are bound. However, such remarks by the Floor Representative shall be limited to
    the bona fides of the candidate for National Convention delegate or alternate delegate as a
    genuine supporter of the presidential candidate designated. The Floor Representative
    shall not advocate the election of one candidate for National Convention delegate or
    alternate delegate over another in his remarks. However, such advocacy may be done in
    nominating and seconding speeches if allowed by Convention Rules, but the Floor
    Representative shall not make or second such nominations.

    Rule Twelve
    The District Caucuses or the whole body of the Convention, as the case may be,
    shall place on the agenda and proceed to the business of the nomination and election of
    delegates to the National Convention before taking up the nomination and election of
    alternate delegates. Unsuccessful candidates for delegate shall be eligible to seek election
    as an alternate delegate. Alternate delegates shall replace delegates who are deceased,
    absent or disabled in alphabetical order drawn from the list of alternates committed to the
    same presidential candidate as the deceased, absent, or disabled delegate.

    Rule Thirteen
    These Rules shall not apply to questions before the Republican National
    Convention other than the balloting for the nomination of President of the United States.

    Rule Fourteen
    All rules and regulations of the Mississippi Republican Party in conflict with the
    provisions of this resolution are hereby repealed. This resolution and its provisions shall
    take effect and be in force from and after May 12, 2011, if effectuated under Section 5 of
    the Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended and extended. Any sections, rules, and
    provisions not effectuated under Section 5 of Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended and
    extended, shall remain in effect and be in force.
    Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes.
