Becoming a Precinct Committee Person

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Precinct Committee Person (PCP) with the Multnomah County Democratic Party. To apply, fill out this form and we will get back to you.

What is a Precinct Committee Person? All Democratic Party Precinct Committee Persons (PCPs) in Multnomah County belong to the Central Committee (CC), which is the governing body of the Democratic Party of Multnomah County. As a PCP, you have a voice and vote in the party when we make decisions that affect your community.

PCPs are organized by House District and precinct. As a PCP, you are the party's grassroots, representing your neighbors to the party and the party to your neighbors. For every 500 registered voters in a precinct, there can be one precinct person of each gender.

How do I become a PCP? There are two ways to become a PCP:

  • You can be appointed. To be appointed, start by filling out this form. When you apply to be appointed as a PCP, your Voter Record is checked to see that your voter status is "Active" and that you are registered as a Democrat. Once approved, your appointment is submitted for a vote at a Central Committee meeting.
  • You can be elected. PCPs are elected during the May Primary Election that is held during even-numbered years. The next chance to be an elected PCP will be in May 2018.
