What are Precinct Committee People?
Precinct Committee Persons (PCP) are the most grassroots-level building block of the Democratic Party of Oregon. They are an important driving force behind registering voters, getting out the word on candidates, and helping Democrats understand the party’s structure, process, and platform. They are the people who go out, walk neighborhoods, and connect with and activate progressive Oregonians, talking to independent, unaffiliated, and Democratic voters alike.
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 Committee Person is a member of the County Central Committee of the county party
