Become a Precinct Committeeman
Precinct Committeemen and Women
Precinct Committeemen ARE the Republican Party of Gila County. As neighborhood elected officials, they represent civil government to the voters and represent the voters to civil government. They help voters understand the issues and meet the candidates. We are looking for active volunteers in Gila County to train as election volunteers, event coordinators and poll watchers; from these we invite the best to become precinct committeemen.
In Arizona, The Precinct Committeeman (or Committeewoman) are not just the most important elected official to the Republican Party – but are the dedicated men and woman who hold this position and are the foundation of our grassroots efforts in all 15 counties of Arizona.
A precinct committeeman is a party worker at the grassroots level. Precinct committeemen are elected by voters in their precinct during general election years.
Where there is a vacancy between elections the Republican Chairman can appoint a registered Republican who resides in the precinct as a precinct committeeman to fill the vacancy. He or she must be a registered Republican residing in that precinct to be placed on the ballot for the next election.
A precinct committeeman’s job is to deliver the maximum Republican votes in the precinct. As you can see, this is why the precinct committeeman is the most important, most critical, official in the Republican Party’s structure! (Read this great article!)
