Become a Committee Person
Precinct Committee Persons, or PCPs, are the lifeblood of the party.
There is no formal obligation on PCPs beyond residency and party affiliation – however, they are often the folks who get things done for the party. Only PCPs may vote on party agenda items. They can be either elected or appointed and serve up to two years, until the next election – or until they move away from their precinct.
Elected PCPs may vote for party leadership during a biennial party reorganization. Appointed PCPs may vote on practically everything else.
The next election for PCPs is 2024
New PCPs were last elected in May 2022. The next election will be in May 2024. If you are interested in becoming a PCP, you can now submit your application on the Secretary of State’s website.
IMPORTANT: If you are currently a PCP, you must submit this application in order to run for reelection!
Like the House of Representatives, terms for PCPs are only two years long and all PCP terms will expire in 2024. You must be reelected in May if you are still interested in being a PCP.
Alternate option: You can print the application and deliver it to the County Clerk’s office in Deschutes County if you prefer not using the online option.
Become an appointed PCP at our next monthly meeting!
The Party can appoint new PCPs by a vote of existing PCPs at any meeting.
If you’d like to formally join us as a voting PCP, please complete the PCP Appointment Form below and bring it with you to our next monthly meeting (2nd Thursday) where you’ll be asked to introduce yourself and then we’ll vote to appoint you. Easy!
Don’t worry if you don’t know your precinct number. We can look that up for you.
This form must be submitted to the party chair and PCPs must hold a vote at a scheduled meeting to appoint you. Please do not submit this form directly to the County Clerk.
