Become a Precinct Committee Person
The role of a PC (Precinct Committee Person) is at the core of political party activity. It’s our ground game.
As a PC, you are a representative of the Arizona Democratic Party in your precinct, or neighborhood.
Elections are truly won or lost in precincts, especially in Maricopa County, and PCs are vital to
ensuring strong Democratic support for Democratic candidates and issues.
PCs are elected during the Primary election and serve a two-year term. PCs can also be appointed by the Legislative District 1 Chair. Any registered Democrat is eligible to be a PC in the precinct where they live as long as they are willing to do the work!
The primary role of the PCs for each precinct is to:
to serve as the connection between the Democratic Party, the voters and our Democratic elected officials
represent your entire precinct within the party
