Precinct Committee Officer (PCO)

 

More information about becoming a PCO: http://www.wa-democrats.org/local/pco

What does a PCO do?
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.
How to become a PCO

To become a PCO, you must be voted into office during the Primary Election in even-numbered election years. The next election for PCOs will be on August 2, 2016. PCOs elected in August will take office on December 1, 2016. All candidates for PCO must file with their County Elections office between May 16th and May 20th.

If you can’t wait until December, there are other ways you can serve as a PCO:
