PCOs

Elected Precinct Committee Officers are literally the foundation of the Washington State Democratic Party.

PCOs play an important role in electing Democrats. It’s their job to get to know their neighbors, educate undecided or swing voters, and make sure Democrats are registered to vote. Before Election Day, they work to turn out voters.

All this hard work adds up to precinct-by-precinct victories and the election of Democratic candidates. This is what grassroots politics is all about!

PCOs are also a central part of their local Democratic organization. They elect Party leadership, help fill vacancies in elected office, and lead their precinct caucus every two years. Becoming active with your local Democratic organization will make you a more effective PCO.

PCO Handbook English

There are two ways to become a PCO – election by the voters in your precinct, or appointment by your local Democratic Party organization.

 
 

Election

Democratic voters in each precinct will elect PCOs in the August Primary. A candidate who runs unopposed will be automatically elected; contested elections will appear on the primary ballot. PCOs elected in August 2018 will take office on December 1st, 2018.

Elected Precinct Committee Officers must meet the following:

Be a registered voter in the 44th LD;Be elected as the Democratic PCO of a precinct within the boundaries of the 44th in accordance with Washington State law;Reside in the precinct that he or she represents.Chooses to be known publicly as a Democrat.

Appointment

Local Democratic Party organizations have the right to appoint PCOs to fill any seats left vacant – either because no one filed to run, or because the elected PCO has stepped down. If your precinct is vacant, the Chair of your local Democratic Party organization can appoint you to serve as an “appointed” PCO starting immediately!

If your precinct already has a PCO, you can assist your PCO as a Precinct Outreach Team Member. Contact us and we’ll put you in touch with your PCO.

If you move from your precinct, you are no longer eligible to remain a PCO. You may decide you need to resign due to a health issue or any other issue that you believe will prevent you from carrying out your duties as a PCO. In those cases, you should complete the PCO resignation form. We are required to obtain a written resignation from a PCO before we can appoint another PCO for the precinct. The signed form should be sent to the chair for signature before being sent to the county chair to approve.
