Become a PCP
The Democratic Party begins with the Precinct Committee Person. A Precinct Committee Person is a representative of the Laramie County Democratic Party in the precinct in which they resides. For every 500 registered voters in a precinct, there should be one precinct person of each gender.
We need you to step up and become more involved with our Party.
The precinct is the smallest political unit in the country. A precinct can not be divided by legislative, congressional or supervisor district. A precinct is where elections are won or lost. Most importantly, it is your neighborhood. You know the people, the schools and the community centers. You have your hand on the pulse of the precinct; you understand the problems and potentials and have a desire to improve your neighborhood.
What does a PCP do?
The precinct committee person is the most important person delivering the Democratic Party message to voters and delivering the concerns of voters to the party. They are also the elected representatives of the Democratic Party to their neighborhoods and the neighborhoods elected representative to the party. For many voters, the precinct committee people are the real presence of the Democratic Party they see and meet. The primary responsibilities of the precinct committee people are:
- Represent the Democratic Party and its Democratic Party candidates in their precincts
- Support the Precinct, District, County, and State party organization
- Elect County Party Officers in the county party’s organizational meeting held in March of odd numbered years
- Canvass and campaign in their precinct on behalf of all Democratic Party candidates
- Suggest election board workers for Election Day
- Assist in registering Democratic Party voters
- Turn out a maximum Democratic Party vote on primary and general election days
- Assist voters to vote early
- Fill Democratic elected official vacancies
- Attend meetings called by the local party organization

How do I become a PCP ?
You can either be elected or appointed.
Precinct committee people are elected at the primary election held every two years (August of even numbered years). Each term lasts two years and there are no term limits.
To get your name on the ballot, you must file a Declaration of Intention to become a Candidate with the County Clerk after May 16, but no later than May 31.
If no one is elected at the August primary, or if a position vacancy is otherwise created, the Democratic County Chair officially appoints precinct people. The appointment is then taken to the County Central Committee for approval. The Democratic County Chair officially appoints precinct people by writing a letter to the County Clerks office. Once you are appointed, you are an official precinct committee person and a member of the county party central committee just as if you had been elected.
