The best way any Democrat can help elect Democrats and defeat Republicans like Bruce Rauner and Peter Roskam is to become a Democratic Precinct Committeeman. Precinct Committeeman are the direct link between candidates and the Democratic Party and the voters. PC’s register voters, deliver information to voters about candidates, and encourage voters to get to the polls.
There will be two important events for anyone considering becoming a precinct committeeman or for anyone who just wants to learn more about the roles of PC’s.
Friends Who March will host “What is a Precinct Committeeman?” on Saturday, August 12 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the DuPage Unitarian Church, 1828 Old Naperville Road, Naperville. One of the speakers will be Bill Houlihan, State Director for Senator Richard Durbin.
The Downers Grove Township Democratic Organization will hold “Campaign 102: The Role of the Precinct Committeeman” on Wednesday evening, August 23 from 7:30 to 9:00 at the Downers Grove Twp. Democrats Office, 906 Curtiss in Downers Grove. All current and prospective precinct committeemen are encouraged to attend to discuss the roles of PCs in building our party and supporting our candidates.
