3-1.3 Whenever possible, the GPCA shall make its endorsements by bringing the matter before the General Assembly. Where it is not possible, the decision may be brought before the GPCA through County Polling. The Coordinating Committee is not empowered to make candidate endorsements on behalf of the GPCA.

3-1.4 The GPCA shall not consider endorsements for General Election candidates for other offices, leaving such endorsements to the county/multi-county level.
