Importance of a PCO:
The PCO are the grassroots of the Grant County Republican Party
They serve on the front lines of our elections, engage directly with their neighbors, build strong communities, ensuring strong Republican turnout in our elections and most of all – Winning Elections. ALL Races are Essential! That starts with the PCO.
The PCO Advantage Factor
- Neighborhoods with PCOs have higher voter turnout
- PCOs help elect candidates for office all the way from school board to statewide offices
- Many elected officials began as a PCO – having a strong pool of PCOs leads to a pipeline for future elected leaders
Filing as a candidate to be a PCO for Election
- Be a member of the Republican Party
- Be a registered voter in the Precinct
- File for election in even numbered years
- If unopposed a PCO candidate is automatically elected, if opposed whoever receives the most votes in the August Primary will be elected
- The PCO serves a two year term starting December 1st following the election.
When there is not an ongoing election, you can still Request to be a PCO now!
