    Platform Resolutions submitted by BCDCC – September 2, 2018:

    PCO Resources

    Each county is divided into several precincts. The Revised Code of Washington (RCW) sets up the rules for each party to elect Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs). PCOs may also be assigned by the County Chair for those precincts which did not elect PCOs.

    PCOs serve for two years. Their purpose is to:

    • Help educate people in their precinct about important issues
    • Get Out the Vote
    • Serve as a member on the County Central Committee, influencing such things as the county party platform and local Democratic activities

    If there is no PCO elected in your precinct, you can submit your name to be considered for appointment as PCO by our BCDCC County Chair. Please e-mail to find out if your precinct has a PCO, or to ask to be appointed. Being a PCO is a lot of on-the-ground, in-the-trenches work, but it is vital to developing our voter base.

    A form for “Declaration of Candidacy for Precinct Committee Office” can be downloaded by clicking here (pdf file). If you prefer, a Microsoft Word file is also available here (doc file).
