The Johnson County Republican Party is committed to providing our local candidates the help they need to win elections—from the top of the ballot to the bottom of the ticket.

To achieve this critical objective, we need the help of volunteers like you—grassroots supporters who can be the conduit between Republican candidates and voters. There are a lot of things to do and JCRP can help provide the opportunities, training, assistance, and support.
