Are you looking for an exciting and valuable way to turn Tarrant County and Texas Blue?
Then perhaps becoming a Tarrant County Precinct Chair is the right fit for you.
What is a Precinct Chair?
A precinct is the smallest political subdivision in Texas. Texas counties are divided into individual precincts, and it is the responsibility of the Precinct Chair to contact, guide and organize Democratic voters in their respective precinct. Precinct Chairs also sit on the County Executive Committee, which conducts the local business of the Party. The duties and responsibilities of Precinct Chairs provide fundamental services to our party effectiveness.
Who Can Become a Precinct Chair?
To be eligible for the office of precinct chair, an individual must meet these requirements:
Be 18 years of age or older
Be a qualified voter who has voted in the latest Democratic primary (not counting runoffs) in the voting year
Be a resident of the precinct from which he or she is seeking election
Not be a candidate for or holder of an elective office of the federal, state, or county government
Think you fit the bill? Now is the time?
Democratic Precinct Chairs are elected for a two-year term in the Democratic Primary in March of even-numbered years.
It’s time for all Chairs to file to run in the March 4, 2014 Democratic Primary. The filing period is September 10, 2013 - December 9, 2013. Please be aware that if you are a sitting Chair your current term ends on June 16, 2014, even if the County Executive Committee recently appointed you.
Studies have shown that precincts that have a Chair, have both a higher percentage of registered voters and a higher percentage of those who actually vote on Election Day.
The form can be found also on the Texas Secretary of State’s website ( MUST be completed, signed before a Notary Public, and returned to Democratic Headquarters by 6:00 p.m. December 9, 2013.
