King County is divided into 2,538 neighborhoods called precincts, many are only a few blocks in size. Most precincts have an Elected Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) who serves as the political representative for that neighborhood.
PCOs walk their precinct before each election making sure their neighbors are registered voters, handing out election materials, and reminding people to vote. They also are key players in spreading the word about Democratic candidates.
PCOs are elected every two years as part of the Democratic primary. You can also be appointed at any time to represent a vacant precinct as an Appointed PCO. If your precinct already has a PCO you can also be appointed as an Acting PCO for a nearby precinct which doesn’t have a PCO.
