A “precinct” is the smallest political unit in the country. Each precinct corresponds to one polling place. A precinct is your neighborhood! In Legislative District 18, there are forty-two precincts.
The role of the Precinct Committeeman (PC) is at the core of political party activity. As a PC, you are a representative of the Democratic Party in your precinct, or neighborhood. Elections are truly won or lost in precincts, especially in Maricopa County, and PCs are vital to ensuring strong Democratic support for Democratic candidates and issues.
PCs are elected during the Primary election and serve a two-year term. PCs can also be appointed by the County Chair. Any registered Democrat is eligible to be a PC in the precinct where she/he lives as long as they are willing to do the work!
The minimum duties of a precinct committeeman shall be to assist the precinct committeeman’s political party in voter registration and to assist the voters of that political party to vote on election days.
