Why You Should Be a PCP

A PCP is Precinct Committee Person. PCPs are the lifeblood of the Republican Party. They’re the grass roots organizers who have the power to rebuild the party from the ground up, and to shape its policies and determine what candidates are nominated.

  • If you want to have the power to truly influence the direction of your party…
  • If you want to have a say in what candidates are nominated to represent you
  • If you’re tired of standing by complaining while the liberals run your state – and your country…

You need to become a PCP. PCPs are the ones who elect the leaders of your local Republican Central Committee. PCPs also elect the delegates who go to the state and national Republican conventions where they establish the Party platform and select our presidential nominees. By becoming a PCP, you can help ensure that those delegates reflect your values and principles. You might even be elected as a delegate yourself!

In addition to selecting party leaders and delegates, PCPs get directly involved in election campaigns, fundraisers, and other events, recruiting and organizing volunteers. If you have good organizational, motivational, interpersonal, or management skills, becoming a PCP is a great way to leverage your skills in service of your principles and ideals. (If you don’t already have these skills, becoming a PCP is a good way to develop them.) Great PCPs not only get things done, they make them fun!

PCPs also participate in voter registration drives, and are the face of the Republican Party in their precincts. Becoming a PCP is a wonderful way to get to know you neighbors and expand your circle of acquaintances. If you’ve ever considered running for office, becoming a PCP is a great way to get your foot in the door.

If you haven't filled out form to get on the ballot as a PCP for your precinct, you should know that it only takes three write-in votes for a PCP to be elected, if there’s a position open in your precinct. That means you just have to write yourself in, and get two other Republicans in your precinct to write you in also. It’s that easy!

We hope to see you at the next RCC meeting.
