What is a Precinct Committeeman (PC)?
Precinct Committeemen (PCs) are official representatives of the Republican Party in your neighborhood. PCs work within the party not only to elect candidates who run in primaries and general elections, but also those who run for internal party positions. PCs are the most powerful officeholders in the party because they vote on the platform, resolutions, leadership and direction of the Party.
PCs inform and galvanize other Republicans that live in their precinct to attend local meetings, support Republican candidates/causes and get out the vote.
What is a Precinct?
A precinct is geographically contiguous and compact area around your neighborhood (it can consist of several subdivisions) that helps local election authorities ensure that voters have access to a convenient place to vote (your polling location). Everyone in your precinct votes at the same location.
How do I Become a PC?
PCs are elected every two years in their parties primary election. When running for precinct committeeman, you will need to gather petition signatures from other Republicans in your precinct and file them in a packet to the Lake County Clerk's office in order to put your name on the ballot.
Before or after an election, the chairman of your Republican county organization can appoint you to the position of precinct committeeman.
