Precinct Chairs (PCs), who are elected for two-year terms at the party’s bi-annual caucuses, are party officers and grassroots leaders who are vital to our success as a party. PCs are members of the Central Committee, which is the county party’s governing body, and represent all of the Democrats within their precinct at county central committee meetings.
Precincts are the smallest political subdivision in Colorado. Pueblo County has 128 precincts, and each precinct elects up to two PCs. Caucuses are held on the first Tuesday in March during election years, but may be held earlier in years with a Presidential election. A vacancy can be filled by the Executive Committee. Contact our party chair to see if your precinct has any PC vacancies and how to fill the vacancy until the next caucus date.
PCs recruit volunteers to help with voter outreach within their precincts. This may include: distributing candidate literature; engaging in voter registration activities; and letting constituents know about their caucus. They lead their caucus—with training from the party.
