There has been a problem with the filing process for people who filed for PCO on Monday or Tuesday. The were irregularities in the original process set up by the Secretary of State’s office for PCO candidate filings. Those have been corrected. For a more complete explanation you can read Tina Podlodowski’s letter which is linked here.
If you filed for PCO on Monday or Tuesday, you must REFILE using the Secretary of State’s corrected process using the Candidate Filing link above!
Precinct Committee Officers are the official members who make up our local Democratic Party organization. Elected PCO’s will be choosing the new party leadership in our reorganization meetings in the December timeframe. Leaders will be chosen for the county and legislative district local party organizations.
If you wish to be at the heart of our local party decision-making, please file to be an elected Precinct Committee Officer with the Benton County Elections Department beginning May 11.
