How to Become a Precinct Committeeman

What is a Precinct Committeeman?

A city, town, or county is divided into precincts, each consisting of a voting place. When a person casts their vote in person, they go to their local precinct to cast their vote.

Each precinct has at least 1 GOP precinct committeeman. The precinct committeeman represents the GOP in that precinct. All of the precinct committeemen within the city or county (unit) are members of the unit committee. In Virginia, for example, there are 132 unit committees throughout the state. The position of Precinct Committeeman is either elected or appointed.

A precinct committeeman is the grassroots of the Republican Party.  It is also a good place to start for people interested in running for political office.

Responsibilities of a Precinct Committeeman

  • Get Out The Vote (GOTV)
  • Distribute Campaign Literature
  • Attend Unit Meetings
  • Assist in Voter Registration
  • Help Elect Republican Candidates
  • Provide Voter Education
  • Vote for Precinct Committee Chairman
  • Other

How to Become a Precinct Committeeman

A precinct committeeman is an elected position. The typical requirements are that you are a registered voter in the precinct for which you want to be a committeeman, you request a committeeman form from the precinct chairman, gather a number of signatures, return the completed form, and then you are voted on for the position. Often these positions are uncontested. If you are applying when an upcoming election is not scheduled, you may be appointed to the position.

  1. I am from Northeastern Pennsylvania, a Pro-Life Republican who is sickened by the last election, and the manifestations of past stolen elections in our area. I would like to help in any way I can. I am also in the same general area of the owner of GAB (he lives in Clarks Summit, I am about 10 miles away in Dunmore-very close to Scranton, Pa. – please don’t confuse that with Biden enthusiasts!). If we are able to enlist the help of GAB, especially in this area, we certainly could Stop the Steal. Unfortunately, I do not know him, but he is a Trump enthusiast. On GAB, I go by the name of Tess208@aol.com. I would like to help in anyway I can-I am older, so people may not be as suspicious as perhaps they should! I am an experienced Pro-Life Protester. Thank you.

  2. I am disabled I’m in a wheel chair. Can I become a precinct commityman? I live in Vancouver, Washington. I want to help somehow.

    1. Dave, your best bet would be to call the state Republican party at (425) 460-0570. Here’s their website, but they don’t have info on Precinct Committeemen listed. https://wsrp.org/. You also might check with Dan Shultz https://theprecinctproject.wordpress.com/. He has the video from when he was on Bannon’s War Room and a lot of info about becoming a Precinct Committeeman. You can post a question at the bottom of his page if you need more info. Thanks for being willing to help.

    2. Go for it, David. I’m 74 and giving it serious thought myself. Everyone needs to do what they can to save the country.

  3. is this different than a delegate? I served as a delegate for one term but I did not like it. it was dog eat dog and that’s not for me. I am a very positive person, a great speaker and a real people person. I am a conservative Republican living in south Lyon Michigan and I want to do whatever I can to make sure that we take back the house and senate and stop the madness!

  4. I live in Stafford, VA and have had enough. Watching this election being stolen from the American people right in front of our eyes, and the establishment uniparty RINOs being in on it, made me sick to my stomach. How can I get in my local precinct to get rid of the RINOs?

  5. Hi, I live in Onondaga County, NY state. I have been an election inspector since 2016. I’m disgusted with the 2020 stolen election. Not happy with Congressman Katko, either. Any suggestions on where I can help? Audrey Clark, Skaneateles, NY

      1. NJ seeking precinct committeeman- assuming to reach out to local GOP- I don’t see info online?

        Thanks so much,
        Sue

  6. I need help. I contacted the Republican County Chair and they don’t know what a precinct committeeman is …

    1. Andrew, I have a couple of suggestions.

      Here’s the link for all the state GOPs. https://conservativeactioncenter.com/library/GOP/

      Find your state and see if they list the local districts and if the districts have the info about becoming a precinct chairman on their site. Sometimes it’s on the state GOP site and a lot of time it is on neither.

      If you can’t find the specific info on the state or local site, try contacting Dan Schultz (coldwarrior@gmail.com). Dan is the originator of the idea of taking over the Party by becoming precinct chairmen. His website is: https://theprecinctproject.wordpress.com/

      Good luck.

  8. Wendy Gooding

    Moved to Las Vegas. Signed up for membership to Clark County Republican Party. My name and 100’s of others that signed up were not noted on list of new members to be voted in on scheduled meeting. They postponed the last meeting claiming Proud Boy threats. The current CCRP leadership are anti-Trump and not acknowledging voter fraud. They are using selective membership to control their anti-American agenda.

    1. I don’t have any contact to help. You might try contacting Adam Laxalt who is likely to run for Senate and is a strong Trump supporter.

    2. Jennifer Silletto

      Hi Wendy,

      My husband also tried to do what you are doing and he said he could not find anything on Clark county website. He said it seemed like they are intentionally not allowing new people in to be precinct committeeman. He is so busy with work he has me tasked to find out where he can go. Can you please email me at jennifer.silletto@gmail.com so that we can work together? I sent an email to moreinfo@clarkgop.org and left a VM today but don’t know if I will hear back.
