Precinct Committee Person
a Precinct Committee Person is an entry level official of the Republican Party. You can represent people that live within a precinct to their county Republican Party. In Marion County, we have a total of 957 PCP positions divided amongst our 118 Marion County Voting Precincts. We have many openings for PCPs. You can help fill these vacant seats by becoming a PCP.
To be eligible for the office of PCP, you must have a current, active voter registration in the State of Oregon, and you must have been a registered Republican for at least 180 days in any state (with exceptions for voters who are applying within 180 days of their 18th birthday). Your County Elections Office will review and certify the eligibility of all persons seeking the role of PCP.
As Marion County PCPs you’ll be asked to volunteer on various campaigns in the county, help register voters and volunteer at events such as the Marion County Fair Booth.
All Marion County PCPs are members of the Marion County Republican Central Committee. this is the governoring body of the County Party. As members, PCP are expected to attend Central Committee meetings (typically held 3rd Thursday of the month). Elected PCP also vote in the Party elections
