About PCOs

Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) are elected every two years by the registered voters within their precincts.  The term for the current list of elected PCOs will expire in December 2018.    Elections take place at the primary.  If someone runs unopposed, their name will not appear on the ballot: they will be automatically elected.  Click here to download the new form to submit as a candidate.Declaration of Candidacy-PCO.

Duties and Responsibilities of Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs)

A Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) is elected by his precinct voters every two years. (Must run for election.) If the precinct does not have an elected PCO, the county Chair can appoint one. The individual must live in the precinct for which he/she is appointed.  A PCO represents the Republican voters in his or her precinct at the Central Committee meetings.

Following are the duties of a PCO:

Stay informed on current issues and candidates; review and be able to communicate the party platforms (county, state & national).

Attend Central Committee meetings on a regular basis and actively participate in party events and activities.

Obtain lists of registered voters from the County Auditor’s office or headquarters.

Canvass your precinct and get to know your voting neighbors.

Build a record of eligible voters and party members within your precinct and provide a list of identified Republicans to headquarters.

Develop contact with the voters in your precinct and keep them apprised of current issues; obtain their input and relay that input to the Central Committee.

Encourage voter registration within your precinct.

Distribute party election materials during election campaigns.

Encourage voters to send in their ballots.

Hold precinct caucuses at certain selected times for the purpose of adopting resolutions and selecting delegates to legislative, county and state conventions (even years only).

Serve as a delegate to the County Convention (even years only).

2016 will be the next year for caucuses and the county convention.  To learn more about what a PCO does, along with tips for becoming successful in that role, click on Information About PCOs.
