Precinct Committee Officers (PCO's)
Your participation in the Democratic Party begins
in your neighborhood.
King County is divided into 2,613 neighborhoods
called precincts, many are only a few blocks in size.
Most precincts have a Precinct Committee Officer (PCO)
who serves as the political representative for that
neighborhood. PCOs walk their precinct before each
election making sure their neighbors are registered
voters, handing out election materials, and reminding
people to vote. They also are a key player in spreading
the word about Democratic candidates! PCOs are elected
every two years in the November general election. It is
also possible to be appointed as a PCO between
elections, or to be appointed as an Acting PCO for a
precinct in which you do not reside.
