Become a PCO

Want to get more involved? Run to become a precinct committee officer (PCO), the Democratic representative for your precinct!

PCOs, or precinct committee officers, are the building block of the Democratic Party. They are the grassroots organizing base for all of our activities.

What do PCOs do?

PCOs have the following basic responsibilities:
  • Canvass or telephone your precinct in coordination with election strategy at least once a year.
  • Coordinate with campaigns in educating voters and generating interest in the election on behalf of candidates and ballot measures.
  • Attend the legislative district and county organization meetings.

How to become a PCO?

You can become a PCO today! Find your precinct here.

To become an appointed PCO, fill out the PCO Application Form and bring it to the next general meeting to apply! If your precinct already has a PCO, you can still become an acting PCO in a nearby precinct.

To become an elected PCO, file to become a Democratic PCO candidate at the next available PCO filing period. Elected PCOs are elected by voters every two years during the August primary. See Online PCO Filing and PCO Manual for more information on becoming an elected PCO in King County.
