Want to be involved in the Democratic process? Become an elected Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) for Asotin County! The ACDCC is now accepting volunteers to be Appointed PCOs for Asotin County. These positions are not elected, but still offer an opportunity for you and your precinct to be represented at the local, legislative, and state level. Read below for more information about the role of a Precinct Committee Officer and contact us if there are any questions and if you are willing to volunteer for this important position.
PCOs play an important role in electing Democrats into offices by educating undecided and swing voters and registering voters. Before elections they work to turn out voters and get them to the polls.
Not only are PCOs part of the grassroots election process, they also help form local Democratic organizations by voting for local party leadership; they bring the voices of their precinct members to the party leaders, and help run their precinct caucus every two years.
To become a PCO in Asotin County you have two options: by being elected or by being appointed.
To be an elected PCO with voting rights, you MUST file with the Asotin County Elections Office (135 2nd St. Asotin, WA) in May of 2018 and reside within the precinct you want to be an officer.
Once your declaration is made, democratic voters in each precinct will elect PCOs in August during the primary. If you are running unopposed in your precinct, you are automatically elected but if your precinct is being contested, your name will appear on the primary ballot. Once elected, you will take office on December 1st.
Appointed PCOs come into office in Asotin County at any time by being appointed by the Asotin County Democratic Central Committee Chair, Rick Laws. If your precinct is vacant, the Chair can appoint you to serve as an "appointed" PCO starting immediately.
If your precinct already has a PCO, our Chair can appoint you as an acting PCO for a precinct that you do not live in. Note that Acting PCOs do not have PCO voting rights.
