How Do I Become a Precinct Committeeman? (click here to read the official pc handbook)

There are two ways to become a precinct committeeman and there is an important distinction between the two. The first, or easiest way, is to be appointed by application through the party. The second way, or the more formal way, is to request a partisan nomination paper and petition to be on the ballot for the next election cycle. The following are some basic rules and procedures for both:

1. PC Appointment Application : These applications  are available through your legislative district chairman, at Pima GOP headquarters and on line (click here).

A. Applicant must be a registered Republican and living in the precinct for which he is applying.
B. Precinct must have an opening for applicant to be an appointed precinct committeeman.
C. The Chairman for the Pima County Republican Party must authorize applicant.
D. Application is forwarded to Elections Division

2. Petition for Precinct Committeeman: These petitions may be submitted each election cycle occurring on an even year. The forms should be available at party headquarters, the Pima Elections Division or you can click here to download.

A. Applicant must be a registered Republican and living in the precinct for which he is applying.
B. Precinct does not have to have an opening to participate in our democratic process.
C. Partisan Candidate Petitions can be picked up any time and signatures can be collected starting with the first day of each election year. (even years). These signatures must be in his precinct (+/- 10)

Whether you are thinking about becoming a PC, just applied, wondering what you are supposed to be doing, or just want to get more involved in the process, please join us at our monthly Precinct Committeeman Training Sessions held every month of the year.
