Being a Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) is one of the most important roles in our party. As a PCO, you are on the front lines of winning elections up and down the ballot – from the School Board to the Senate. Here’s what PCOs do:
- PCOs are the main point of information and contact for voters in your neighborhood and within the Democratic Party.
- PCOs are also a central part of their local Democratic organization. They elect Party leadership and help fill vacancies in elected office.
HOW DO I BECOME A PCO?
You can be elected to a 2-year term as PCO by your neighbors in the August primary in even-numbered years. To do so, you’ll need to file to run for PCO with your county auditor. Don’t worry: it’s fast, free, and you can do it online:
But don’t worry if you missed the election. If there’s no Democratic PCO in your precinct, your local Democratic Party organization can appoint you as a PCO: Contact your local Party organization to learn about becoming an appointed or acting PCO.
