Why be a PCO?
Many of our elected representatives, including Senator Patty Murray, started as PCOs. If you are considering running for elected office, this is great “on the job” training! And if you’d rather just do a bit of good in the world, this is a great place for you too. It’s really just about listening and sharing and working with other people who are passionate about making the world a better place.
PCOs need to file for office between May 16, 2022, at 9am and May 20, 2022, at 4pm. Sometimes more than one candidate files for a precinct- if yours is one with more than one candidate then the precinct voters elect their preferred candidate during the August primary. The elected PCOs are unpaid volunteers, though they do get free membership in the Democratic Party organizations in their legislative district and county.

PCO candidates file for office during May and, if more than one candidate files, are elected by their precinct’s voters during the August primary.
