Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) are the grassroots organizers for all activities of the First District Democrats. PCOs increase voter turnout and personally communicate the Democratic Party message to people in every neighborhood of the District.
PCOs elect the leadership of the First District Democrats (both in King and Snohomish counties) and our representatives to the state party. Leading a Precinct Caucus every two years is another important role of PCOs.
PCOs are elected officials of the Democratic Party and serve as the Democratic representative for their precinct. A precinct can be as small as a section of a neighborhood or as large as a historical township, but precincts usually contain 200 to 800 registered voters.
Which precinct do I live in?
Your voter registration card has your precinct number on it or you can find your precinct online right here.
How do I become an Precinct Committee Officer?
To become an elected PCO, you must be voted into office during the Primary Election in an even-numbered year. The most recent PCO elections were held in August 2016, and will be held again in August 2018.
If you missed the 2016 PCO election but would still like to volunteer, you can be appointed PCO of your precinct if the position is currently vacant. You can also assist your local PCO or be appointed Acting PCO of a nearby precinct.
