First of all, you do not have to be a dues-paying member to attend our meetings (6:30 p.m. the second Thursday of each month at the Alma Elks Lodge). So you are free to “try before you buy.”

With your help, we can continue to elect responsible individuals that reflect our conservative values, including fiscal responsibility, smaller government and lower taxes.

Your input and involvement is appreciated as we work to make positive changes in our government, locally, statewide and nationally.

Your financial support is important as we work for more victories in Gratiot County and beyond. Please join us in this mission by becoming a Gratiot County Republican Party member.

Your dues payment goes into the GCRP bank account and allows us to promote the party and its candidates in Gratiot County throughout the year. It also entitles you to vote at GCRP meetings.

Dues are $25 per year for an individual ($5 for students) and $40 for a couple. Contact Treasurer Ralph Echtinaw at to receive a form to fill out. Or you can pick one up from Ralph at the next meeting. Payment must be by check or money order.
