Become A PCO

Make a Real Difference, Starting With Your Neighborhood

A Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) is one of the most important roles in the Democratic Party. They serve on the front lines of our elections, engage directly with their neighbors, build strong communities and ensure strong Democratic turnout in all elections. Apply now!

What are a PCO’s duties?

  • Make sure neighbors in your precinct are registered to vote
  • Remind neighbors in your precinct to vote
  • Vote on party priorities and leadership
  • Decide which candidates to endorse

Why are PCOs important?

PCOs are the backbone of the local Democratic party:

  • Neighborhoods with PCOs have higher voter turnout
  • PCOs vote on and endorse candidates for office all the way from school board to state legislature. They help connect voters to those who hold those offices.
  • PCOs can build toolkits and best practices that can be shared amongst Legislative Districts
  • Many future elected officials begin as a PCO – having a strong pool of PCOs leads to a strong pipeline for future party leadership
