Want to scratch that itch?

Do you have that itch to get involved? Consider serving as a precinct officer!

By volunteering to serve as a Democratic Party precinct officer, you can help organize the voters in your own neighborhood and get out the Democratic vote on election day.

You need to be a registered Democrat in your precinct, and there needs to be a vacancy as chair, vice chair or secretary. (Contact your county party or the State Headquarters and we can tell you if there's an opening, and how to get appointed.) You can help candidates, local or statewide, by hosting a precinct event, calling your Democratic neighbors, registering newcomers to your community, or distributing literature. We'll be glad to show you how and provide you with the tools that will make it easy to do!

If officers are already in place, offer to help. They'll probably be glad to hear from you!

Elections are won or lost at the precinct level. There's plenty of work to be done, but it's not overwhelming if enough people pull on the same rope. A few hours a week can make all the difference in the world - literally!
