I wasn’t politically active this past week, but tonight I’ll go to my local Democratic Party meeting so I can fill out the forms to be a candidate for precinct committeewoman. We elect precinct committeepersons every four years, in presidential election years. We’re elected in the state primary election, in late August. In most precincts we have more committeeperson slots available than we have candidates to fill them, so the qualified candidates are elected by default.

Your local Democratic Party may have these same organizational elections soon. So if you want to serve as a precinct committeeperson, this is a good time to call your local party and ask how you can qualify as a candidate.
