What is a Precinct Committee Person?
A Precinct Committee Person (PCP) represents the Republican voters that live within his or her precinct. The PCP works to ensure that Republicans and unaffiliated voters that live in their precinct are aware of elections, candidates, and how to vote. A PCP is elected in even numbered years for a two-year term at the precinct caucus.
What is a caucus and how can I participate?
A caucus is a meeting open to registered Republicans residing within a precinct. The purpose of the caucus is to elect delegates to attend various assemblies, to recommend party platform stances to the Republican Party, and to elect two Precinct Committee People to represent the precinct.
In order to participate in a Republican Caucus, an individual must be a registered voter residing within the precinct for 2 months prior to the caucus meeting and be affiliated with the Republican Party for 30 days prior to the caucus date.
