Precinct Committeeperson

This office will appear on the May 17, 2022 Primary Election ballot.

Please note that due to the delay in receiving 2020 U.S. Census population data, precinct boundaries will not be finalized by September 9, 2021. As a result, the precinct associated with your address may change. Candidates are encouraged to wait until the precinct boundaries are final before filing. If you file a declaration of candidacy before redistricting has been completed, contact the county elections office before the candidate filing deadline of March 8, 2022 and verify that you are a candidate in the correct precinct. If you will not qualify in the redrawn precinct the original filing will need to be withdrawn and a new filing submitted in the correct precinct.

It is recommended that you contact your local party organization before filing.
