Precinct Committee Persons

Precinct Committee Persons are the building blocks of the Democratic Party of Oregon.

Precinct Committee Persons (PCPs) are elected every two years by Democratic voters in their precinct and serve for two years. There is no term limit for PCPs.

Who can be an elected Democratic PCP?

  • Any voter who has been registered with the Democratic Party for at least 180 days prior to filing to run. If you file on May 17th (the last possible day) you will have had to be a registered Democrat since November 18th, 2021.
  • There can be one PCP for every 250 registered Democratic voters per precinct.

In the meantime, if you are interested in becoming a PCP and serve until the next primary election (May 17, 2022), you can be appointed as one by your County Democratic Party.

Who can be appointed as a Democratic PCP?

  • Each County Democratic Party has its own rules regarding who can be appointed as a PCP. Please check with your local Democratic Party office or fill out the webform below and your County Party will be notified of your interest in being appointed as a PCP.

Fill out the form on this page or click here if you’re interested in being appointed as a PCP.

If you’re still having issues, contact [email protected], or reach out to your county election official.

Voter Registration: You must be registered to vote in the county where you are running to serve as a PCP and you must return your filing form to your local county elections office. You must also be a registered Democrat in your precinct for a minimum of 180 days prior to your filing date in order to become a Democratic PCP.

Thank you for your interest in serving as a Precinct Committee Person!

Precinct Committee People are elected on the May Ballot in General Election Years. The next PCP Election will be in May 2022.

In the meantime, each county in Oregon has a Democratic Party that can appoint PCPs to fill vacancies until the next election. Every county has a slightly different process as to how they fill these vacancies, so if you sign up below we'll send your information to your local Democratic Party to get in touch with you with next steps!
