What's the most powerful office in government?
I'll bet you thought the President of the United States was the most powerful office. And while that office is pretty powerful, the Precinct Committeeman/woman is even more powerful.
As a Precinct Committeeperson (PC):
You influence the adoption of the Republican county political platform
You influence Primary Candidates
You help McHenry County Republican Party change laws
You help find qualified voters to serve as Republican Election Judges and poll watchers
In short, YOU are the "boots on the ground" to spread information about our Candidates and our Party.
It's easy to be elected as a Precinct Committeeperson. Candidates are not usually contested, and if your precinct already has a great PC, you may be able to be assigned to another nearby precinct. The only requirements are that you are a U.S. citizen, 18 years of age or older, and a registered voter in the precinct in which you stand for election. These same requirements apply to appointed committeemen, with the exception that you don't have to live in the precinct to which you are appointed.
