Be a Precinct Committee Officer!


Want to be involved in the Democratic process? Become an elected Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) for Asotin County!  The ACDCC is accepting volunteers to be appointed PCOs for Asotin County. These positions are not elected, but still offer an opportunity for you and your precinct to be represented at the local, legislative, and state level. Read below for more information about the role of a Precinct Committee Officer and contact us if there are any questions and if you are willing to volunteer for this important position.

PCOs play an important role in electing Democrats into offices by educating undecided and swing voters and registering voters. Before elections they work to turn out voters and get them to the polls.

Not only are PCOs part of the grassroots election process, they also help form local Democratic organizations by voting for local party leadership; they bring the voices of their neighbors to the party leaders, and help run their precinct caucus every two years.

​There are two ways to become a PCO:  election by the voters in your precinct, or appointment by your local Democratic Party organization.

Election

Democratic voters in each precinct will elect PCOs in the August Primary. A candidate who runs unopposed will be automatically elected; contested elections will appear on the primary ballot. PCOs elected in August will take office on December 1st. All candidates for PCO must file with their County Elections office in the third week of May and reside in the precinct in which they want to be elected . The Asotin County Auditor/Elections Office is located at: 135 2nd St.  Asotin, WA. 
A printable declaration can be found here.

Once your declaration is made, democratic voters in each precinct will elect PCOs in August during the primary.  If you are running unopposed in your precinct, you are automatically elected but if your precinct is being contested, your name will appear on the primary ballot. Once elected, you will take office on December 1st.

Appointment

Local Democratic Party organizations have the right to appoint PCOs to fill any seats left vacant - either because no one filed to run, or because the elected PCO has stepped down. If your precinct is vacant, the Chair of your local Democratic Party organization can appoint you to serve as an "appointed" PCO starting immediately!
