What is a Precinct Committeeperson?
If you are a member of the Democratic or Republican party, you will receive a ballot with “Precinct Committeepersons” on it.
Voting for Precinct Committeepersons (PCPs):
To qualify as a Precinct Committeeperson (PCP), one must have lived in the county and have been registered in their political party for at least 180 days prior to the Primary Election. A person can represent the precinct in which they live, an adjacent precinct (within the same county) or another precinct within the same House District (within the same county). They serve a two-year term.
A Committee person is elected in each precinct for every 250 voters ( or major part thereof) that are registered in the precinct as of September 11th (251 days prior to the Primary Election).
Your ballot will indicate how many offices are available in your precinct. For instance, it would say “Vote for Six” if there are six offices available for your ballot.
