About 200 Republicans got an early start Saturday morning, during the Forsyth County Republican Party’s mass precinct meeting.“Everything went off like clockwork,” said Ethan Underwood, party chairman. “There were a lot of new faces, which was good because we had a lot of new folks who wanted to get involved.”The meeting was the first in a two-step process to elect the party’s officers. About 800 delegates were approved to attend the county convention next month and vote for officers.
