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.

Find your precinct here and contact us if you’d like to meet your neighborhood PCPs! [coming soon]

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 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.

Become an elected PCP next May (2020)

The first day Precinct Committee Person candidates can file will be in February 2020. It usually only takes 3 votes to win as most precincts will have uncontested vacancies.


You must complete, sign, and submit form SEL105, Candidate Filing – Precinct Committee Person (PDF). Bring that form to our next monthly meeting and we’ll turn it in for you. You can also take it directly to the County Clerk’s office, but please let us know that you are running!
