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

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.

Whether elected or appointed, a PCO is expected to:
Publicly support the principles and goals of the Democratic Party; Support the work of the Democratic Party in the 44th; Donate some of their time, money, and/or energy to the 44th; Vote on matters pertaining to filling vacancies in public office; Contact the voters in their precinct at least once per year; Chair their precinct#8217;s caucus; An Elected PCO is entitled to:
Participate and vote on all matters in the biennial reorganization meeting, and monthly or special meetings of the 44th; Participate and vote in quarterly and special meetings of the Snohomish County Democratic Central Committee; Hold any elected or appointed position in the 44th; Serve on committees and subcommittees, including as committee chairs, as outlined in these Bylaws and the Standing Rules of the 44th
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.
