LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Last week, NewsChannel 11 brought you the results of the Decision 2010 Primary elections. The Republican party placed five propositions on the ballot and we wanted to know what they are going to do with the results.

"The Republican party cares about what the grassroots are thinking and that's why we put these questions, propositions on the ballot in the primary," says Republican Party Chairman Chris Winn.

Statewide, more than 90 percent of Republicans voted in support of more limited government, cutting federal income tax and to require photo id's when voting.

The most support, at 95 percent, favored acknowledgement of God in public gatherings, schools, and government places. The last with 70 percent wanted stricter abortion requirements.

"The republican party thought these were the five issues that people would most want to grade," says Winn.

These results will help elected officials decide on what legislation to push, according to voter opinion.

"It will create policy by our elected officials that they feel will be supported by the republican party grass roots," says Winn.

The results of these issues and resolutions will be gathered and presented at the Lubbock County Republican Party Convention on March 20th. Each will be made into a party platform.

After that, the resolutions will be heard at the Texas Republican Convention in June to make a statewide party platform.

These propositions only appeared on the Republican ballot. The Democratic party did not have any questions or propositions on their primary ballots to vote on.
