                                      Precinct Chair  Volunteer to be a Local Leader

The position of Precinct Chair is considered to be the most essential leadership role in a political party, as it is the Precinct Chair who has day to day interaction with the voters in their area.

 

                             
             5 Duties of the Precinct Chair
 
1) Identifying and registering voters in your Precinct

This is an exciting opportunity to meet your neighbors, get to know your neighborhood, and also a chance to get some great exercise. Most Precincts are easy to walk in a day or two depending ontagorda your pace, fitness level, and your engagement level. Who knows, maybe you’ll meet a neighbor who is willing to walk with you!

2) Informing voters as to political events, and helping turn out the vote

The Matagorda County GOP has meetings and events that you could invite your neighbors to. This is a great way for them to get involved and stay up to date with what is going on in politics. Turning out the Republican vote is important to every election and the best way to do that is to have an active Republican Precinct Chair.

3) Attending meetings of the County Executive Committee

As a Republican Precinct Chair you are entitled to a vote at the County Executive Committee meeting. You are able to help decide on matters that effect your county party. These are also great strategy and educations sessions on how to be a great Precinct Chair in your county.

4) Working at the polls and/or recruiting poll workers

One of the best ways to meet people in your Precinct is to work the polls at elections. Your friends and neighbors will have a chance to meet and talk with you. This also helps ensure election integrity.

5) Running the Precinct Convention

Every two years, your Precinct will hold a Precinct Convention. As Precinct Chair you are tasked with running this convention. It is a time where people from your Precinct can submit resolutions to be considered for inclusion in the Republican Party of Texas Platform. Resolutions passed in your convention will go to the Senate District Conventions, and if included there will go on to the Texas Republican Convention to be voted on there.

We all work together

The important thing to remember about being a Precinct Chair is that you are not alone. Information, voting lists, supplies, etc. are available from the County Republican Party Our more experienced Precinct Chairs are always there to assist you.

Precinct Chairs must be a resident of that precinct in order to qualify for a place on the ballot. Precinct Chairs are elected in the Republican Primary: in 2016, the Primary will be held on March 1st. If unopposed, they do not appear on the ballot, but are considered elected that day. If more than one person files for Precinct Chair, the voters of that precinct decide.

The filing period for Precinct Chairs runs from September 15 until December 14th at 6:00 PM. If elected, the Precinct Chair will serve a two-year term commencing June 13th (20 days after the Primary Run-Off Election as per Texas Election Code). There is no filing fee for the precinct chair position.
