What precinct am I in ?
Does my precinct already have a PCO ?
The PCO application is here
The PCO position requires you to work in your neighborhood throughout the year. You will be a much more effective PCO if you are working with your neighbors regularly (through hosting monthly precinct coffees, walking, calling around, etc.).
The PCO is your precinct’s representative to the Democratic Party - you let us know what your neighbors are thinking about important issues and candidates. Attending meetings (1 a month, 3 hours) is preferable but not mandatory. Any other skills you want to use - let us know and we’ll find a way for you to contribute.
1. Walk precinct annually, talking to the voters in your area. We’ll help you with a list and provide materials and candidates. We can also help explain how door belling works.
2. As possible, help walk neighboring areas as part of endorsed campaigns.
3. Receive email from the District. Periodically respond, but at least know what’s going on.
4. Be able to use online voter system (training is available).
5. Be willing to vote at the monthly meeting on bylaws, endorsements, the budget, etc.
6. Convene precinct caucus (training available) every two years.
7. Help out with any unique skills you might have (ie computers, media, letter writing, event plans, etc.)
8. If you’re really serious, learn Robert’s Rules of Order, make friends, and get yourself elected as a Delegate from the Fifth to the State and National conventions.
If you would like more information on being a PCO, the 5th District will work to train you in all aspects of PCO work, including VoteBuilder. Our training is designed to complement that offered by the WSDCC and the King County Dems. The latest training materials from King County are available for downloading here
