Precinct Committees: The Party's True Power

TrueBlueGrassRoots Revolution

Restoring the Voice of the People of Each Neighborhood


PRECINCT: A subdivision of a city or town for the purposes of voting and representation in city or town Government. Since they are the smallest division of Government in the United States, they may in some circumstances be grouped into Wards. 


Precincts usually do not have separate governmental authorities, but in some states, including Ohio, the voters within a precinct may, by initiative or referendum, vote on a particular issue, such as a special noise ordinance, that would only be applicable only within that specific Precinct (called "Local Option Elections"). For purposes of conducting elections, every address in a County is assigned to a Precinct, each of which has a specific polling station where its residents go to vote.


Certain individuals, known by various titles such as Precinct Captain, or Precinct Committee Officer, are typically elected at their Precinct Conventions which are usually held on the first Saturday of April every Election Year. However, in certain circumstances, such as low turn out, an exception can be made to allow for the County Party Executive Committee to accept new members. 


The purpose of such individuals is to represent their Precinct's residents in every level of party operations. They represent how the voters in a Precinct feel about candidates and issues, as well as encourage people to vote. In Kentucky, each Precinct should ideally have three Committee Officers: one man, one woman, and one youth under the age of 35.


As you'll see below, the vast majority or Daviess County's Precinct Committees are completely empty, thus rendering the Precinct Networking System completely useless. Therefore I would strongly urge you to seriously consider filling out the form below to join the TrueBlueGrassRoots effort to refill and revitalize our Community level Political system. If ever we needed communities coming together, it is right now!
