Become a Precinct Committee Organizer (PCO):
The PCO (Precinct Committee Officer) is the party’s representative in each neighborhood. In addition to informing their neighbors about our endorsed candidates, PCOs have the responsibility of voting on our party Bylaws and electing officers to the party. PCOs are elected every two years by voters in their precincts.
In precincts that don’t currently have an elected PCO, we are looking for people to serve as appointed PCOs, with similar responsibilities but limited voting rights for party issues. Step up to talk to voters in your precinct and work to get Democrats elected!
