The office of precinct committeeman (“PC”) has been has been called “the most powerful office in the world” because the PC is the closest structured political officeholder to the registered voter. A registered voter has no vote in internal Party policy; a precinct committeeman does. A PC elects district, county and state party officers, delegates to the Presidential convention and RNC members. PCs sent to the Pres. Convention vote on what policies the party platform will be advocated in the next 4 years. Through a periodic scheduled meeting, PCs interact with their elected Party officials to influence legislation.
Here’s the point: the Party does have good conservatives in it who are willing to take positions of Party leadership, but they won’t get elected into those positions unless the Party has a solid majority of conservatives in the PC ranks. As a PC, you can devote as much or as little time to other PC tasks such as helping to get out the vote on election day and informing the voters in your precinct about the best candidates, how best to vote on initiatives, etc. Politics matter. Look at the outcome of the last election. But to be able to vote for the Party leadership, a conservative registered Republican voter must be a PC. It’s that simple.
Finding your local Republican Party organization.
Do you have a Voter ID card? Some states issue them. It may tell you what precinct you reside in, which congressional district you live in, which state legislative district you live in, and which school district you live.
Your main goal will be contact the Coconino County chair, currently Jeff Oravits, FLAGSTAFFGOP@icloud.com, and let him know that you want to become a precinct committeeman as soon as possible, and that you eventually want to become an elected precinct committeeman when the primary season rolls around.
