Frequently Asked Questions
The Central Committee is comprised of the people who are elected to represent their precincts, district captain areas, and the officers, which include the Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary. In addition, the Central Committee includes County Party officers (Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary), Area Coordinators (appointed by the Chair), Committee Chairs (appointed by the Chair), the County Party Treasurer, elected officials, and the Judicial District Chair. Every two years the Party reorganizes and the elected positions are voted on.
A precinct is basically a neighborhood. The boundaries are determined during reapportionment after the census, which is held every ten years. There are usually between 1200 and 2000 voters in a precinct.
The PCP is elected at the Party caucus held every two years, in even years. There are spots for two elected PCPs for each precinct. These PCPs represent their neighbors at the County Party level for a two-year cycle.
PCPs organize their precinct by blocks and streets and recruit and train volunteers to help with canvassing and campaigns. At the subsequent caucus, these PCPs will run the precinct caucus.
District Captains (DCs) are elected by PCPs from each Captain’s District (4-9 precincts) every two years, at the reorganizational meeting. Two DCs are elected. The DCs organize their precincts for the Party, to identify, register, and mobilize voters to the polls to win elections for Republican candidates. DCs are the link between the County Party, the Area Coordinators, and PCPs.
Area Coordinators (ACs) are appointed by the Chair to organize their House District for the County Party. ACs work closely with their House District chairs to organize and mobilize the district, monitor their data using a data dashboard, determine goals for the district, and assist Republican candidates to get elected. A House District has one or more Senate District and ACs and HD Chairs also work closely with Senate Chairs.
The Executive Committee is comprised of County Party Officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer); elected officials; Area Coordinators (appointed by the Chair); Committee Chairs (appointed by the Officers); House and Senate District Chairs; and the Judicial District Chair. The Executive Committee holds monthly meetings at Headquarters.
People are elected to represent their precincts and districts every two years, in even years, during the County Republican reorganizational meeting.
