Precinct Committeeperson (PCP) Filing
Precinct committeepersons serve as members of their respective major political party (currently Democrat and Republican parties). Due to redistricting, the precincts are still being redrawn, but here is general information about the filing:

  • Each Precinct is allowed one PCP per 250 voters, with a minimum of two PCPs per precinct. 
  • A person may file (or be nominated) in their resident precinct, an adjacent precinct, or any precinct that shares the same State Representative District within the same county. To file for office, use the SEL 105 online filing form.
  • If you would like to nominate someone for a PCP position, use form SEL 105N. The nominated candidate must be a member of the stated political party by November 18, 2021 to be eligible, and both the nominator and candidate must be a member of the same party and within the same State Representative district (see table below). The last day to file using this form is 8 pm on election day, May 17, 2022.
  • If you decide to file by write-in, you must submit form SEL 105D. You must be a member of the stated political party by November 18, 2021. The last day to file using this form is 8 pm on election day, May 17, 2022.
A table with the precinct filing options will be added as soon as the local redistricting process is completed.
