THE EFFECTIVE PRECINCT COMMITTEEMAN
The most important position in the Party is a Precinct Committeeman. You are the heart, soul and strength of this party. Grassroots activism begins with you. You represent the Party to your neighbors and in turn you are the eyes and ears of the Arizona Republican Party.
The Conservative Republican Precinct Committeeman (P.C.) L.E.A.D.S. by Listening, Educating, Activating and Deciding elections, and Supporting the candidates, the party, and our voters. You make THE difference in elections by registering new Republican voters and getting them to vote. Your actions in your precinct will determine whether good Republicans are elected to all levels of public office.
Together we will build and sustain the best conservative Republican Party organization in the country, support the people of the State of Arizona, endeavor to adhere to the principles and platform of the Party, and promote the Constitution and the Founding Fathers principles of limited government for a citizenry endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.
What Is A Precinct?
The precinct is the smallest political unit in the country; each precinct responds to one polling place. A precinct is where elections are won or lost. Most importantly, it is your neighborhood. You know the people, the schools, and the community centers. You have your hand on the pulse of the precinct. You understand the assets and needs of your neighborhood and have a desire to improve it.
Never underestimate the power of the precinct-based leader! It is the PC, actively participating in the Republican Party at the precinct level, who wins elections and promotes conservative Republican values and ideals at the local, state, and national levels.
Basic Party Organization
The Arizona Republican Party organization would not exist but for the PC. Being a PC means using the tools the District, County and State Republican Parties provide you to organize your precinct and educate the voters in it. It involves a minimum time commitment of a few hours a month every month (slightly more during campaign season) and the ability to help on Election Day to help Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV).
Bottom line, though, you, an elected PC, decide HOW you will encourage your fellow Republican voters to vote in the primary and general elections.
PC Job Description
The PC serves as the main communication source between the Arizona Republican Party and current and future Republicans in their precinct. The PC is charged with connecting the people in the precinct to the Republican Party, and the Party to the People.
Remember, you are providing a wonderful service to the Party and to your community. Have fun!
