We need you – for PCO!

PCOs, or precinct committee officers, are the building block of the Republican Party. They are the grassroots organizing base for all of our activities.

PCOs are elected officials of the Republican Party; they are the Republican representative for their precinct. A precinct can be as small as the open spaces of an historical township or as large as half of an incorporated town, but precincts usually contain 20-250 registered voters.

To become a PCO, you must be voted into office during the Primary Election in even-numbered election years. The next election of PCOs will be held on August 2, 2016.

You must fill out a declaration of candidacy to run for election as a PCO. Filing week for the August 2016 Primary Election is May 16th through May 120th. In Lincoln County, this means filing on paper at the County Courthouse. There is no cost to file.

If you have any questions about how to file, feel free to contact our Chairman, Carol Paul at 509-236-2207. For the Elections Office call 509-725-4971.
