Building Local Leadership – Precincts

If you haven’t yet, please take a moment to read our Position Statement so you understand our overall vision and purpose. Now, let’s dive in!

 

2/25 Buncombe County Precinct Elections

All power in the Democratic Party derives from your precinct, which is a given area of citizens grouped by voting location. We’re here to help catalyze people to become involved in their precinct, encourage those interested to take on a leadership position, and reshape our party from the ground up by working together!

In odd-numbered years (e.g. 2017), each precinct will elect precinct officers at their annual meeting: Chair, Vice Chair, and Treasurer. In Buncombe County, all precincts (except Black Mountain on March 4 and Montford on February 22) will be meeting on February 25. Members of each precinct with at least five registered Democrats in attendance will elect precinct officers (listed above), as well as select delegates to represent the precinct at the county convention (more on that later).  

Part of our focus right now is to ensure that at least 5 Our Revolution members are represented at each precinct meeting. If you attended our January meeting then you should have received an email from us if your precinct has less than 5 OR members. If you are just getting involved and you’ve recently signed up for our emails, then we’ll be in touch with you to help you find your precinct as soon as we can.

Please visit the links below to visit the precinct lookup, find a map of your precinct, and reach out to progressive neighbors that you know in your precinct.

We are also encouraging OR individuals to run for a precinct officer position (more on that and full explanation of how precincts work here). These precinct meetings are a great opportunity to see grassroots organizing in action, and participate in strengthening the Democratic Party! Even if you don’t want to be a precinct officer, going to your meeting will help the party grow and represent your neighborhood in the year to come. Just by attending your precinct meetings, you can still become a delegate to the county convention, where you’ll be able to vote on important party decisions.

 

PLEASE attend if you want to help us make the Democratic Party into a party that represents working Americans! If you can’t attend, please email us and we’ll be sure to get you on the same page and prepared for your 2/25 precinct meeting.
