ACDP 2021 Precinct Organizing

All politics are local


Precinct Organizing Survey Here


Getting involved in your precinct is the most effective way to help Democratic candidates win.  Each precinct elects a chair, vice chair, secretary, and treasurer every two years. These are unpaid, volunteer positions. We need you to come to your meeting, elect officers or run for a position yourself, write and pass resolutions. This is your chance to meet new people and to be part of the positive change you want to see in our county, state, and country.

Our Precincts are where our power is.

Successful politics requires grassroots organization, that’s where precincts come in because they are the most local, most basic unit in American politics. Virtually everything in politics is built around precincts. That means that when it comes to elections or organizing around a local issue precinct organization has a huge effect on the outcome.

So, how do you get started with precinct organization?

Volunteer. Someone needs to be in charge.  For precincts, that means “precinct chair” and officers.  A precinct chair is someone who serves as a point of contact between the people in their local neighborhood and the ACDP and NCDP.


Precinct Organizing Best Practices

1: Identify other Democratic voters

In order to build any organization you need people, and that means identifying others who are willing to help.  Try to identify at least ten people in your precinct.

2: Successful elections are all about addition and multiplication!

Once a core group of Democrats has been identified, what should they do?  Why, identify other Democratic voters of course. 

3: Inform and mobilize precinct volunteers

Once a list of Democratic voters has been put together, the next step is to inform them and get them involved.

4: Stay informed and connected

Keep up to date on current events in the county and identify potential projects and opportunities for activism – and pass the information on to others.
