Become a Precinct Committee Person
The precinct is the smallest political unit in the country. A precinct can not be divided by legislative, congressional or supervisor district. A precinct is where elections are won or lost. Most importantly, it is your neighborhood. You know the people, the schools and the community centers. You have your hand on the pulse of the precinct; you understand the problems and potentials and have a desire to improve your neighborhood.
Never underestimate the power of the precinct worker! It is the precinct worker, actively participating in the Democratic Party at the precinct level, who wins elections for the Democratic Party at the local, state, and national levels.
The Democratic Party begins with the Precinct Committee Person. A Precinct Committeeperson is a representative of the Party in the precinct in which he or she resides. For every 500 registered voters in a precinct, there should be one precinct person of each gender. Each Precinct Person is a member of the County Central Committee of the county party. The Curry County Democrats is the highest authority in county party policies. This body has the authority to adopt rules or resolutions covering any matter of party government within the county. Additionally, this is the body that establishes the policies, articulates the beliefs and establishes the standard of all local Democratic candidates. These basic policies, beliefs and standards are then passed on to the State and National party for action.
Being a Precinct Committeeperson can mean a lot of hard work, a lot of educating and persuading and a good sense of organization, but Precinct Committee people are the cornerstone of the party, and can really have an impact.
