BECOME A DEMOCRATIC PRECINCT COMMITTEEPERSON NOW!
Do you want to make a difference in your community? Do you want government to be more responsive to average citizens and less influenced by big money interests? Are you concerned about the steady decline in voter participation or the increasing apathy of younger voters? Do you believe we all have some responsibility in shaping sound public for Oregon's future?
If you answer YES to any of these questions, then being a Democratic Precinct Committeeperson (PCP) is the most important thing you can do for this upcoming election cycle.
As a precinct leader, you have the power to effect change. You play an instrumental role in carrying the Democratic message directly to voters. You keep our candidates informed on local issues, and your hard work is the difference in close races. Together as Democrats, we will make Majority 2020 a reality and return responsible leadership to Congress and the Oregon Legislature.
This year our precinct leaders will be charged with a special mission to reach out beyond Democratic voters. The Democratic Party of Oregon wants to invite all non-affiliated voters (NAVs) to participate. These voters do not currently belong to any political party organization but represent a vital segment of Oregon's electorate. We need to aggressively educate and encourage these voters to vote Democratic!
There is no more powerful political force than the voice of a citizen. You are the reason Oregon is a special place. It is not enough to be willing to defend liberty; we must fight to win it, again and again. We must rage at injustice and never sit idle when ignorance threatens freedom.
We need to begin NOW to gather our base to be ready for our elections in 2018 and 2020. Our victory begins now with your help. Become a Precinct Committee Person and help your local precinct with questions, problems, or any issues that come up! This is a great way to meet your neighbors and represent the Democratic party in a friendly and neighborly way.
