A political party is an organization that seeks to influence government by nominating candidates and helping them get elected.
A party platform is a document that expresses a party’s official positions on various issues.
A county chair is the presiding officer of a county executive committee.
A precinct chair is responsible for organizing and mobilizing voters, and representing their election precinct on the county executive committee. Also, they typically serve as temporary chair during precinct conventions.
Precinct chairs are elected in the primary election. To start the process, simply submit an application for a place on the ballot. You can get an application from your local party or the Secretary of State.
It depends. If there is already a precinct chair in your election precinct, then you will have to wait. If there isn’t one, contact your local party and let them know that you’re interested in serving.
