Become A Precinct Committeeman

Becoming a precinct committeeman is one of the most rewarding ways to serve the Republican Party.  These volunteers act as the conduit of information from the party to Republican voters in their neighborhood, and their hard work can make the difference in a tight election. Precinct committeemen can be elected or appointed to represent the Republican voters in their precinct.  Their responsibilities range from helping Republican candidates get petition signatures to assisting with getting out the vote in the general election.

Precinct committeemen are elected every two years in the primary election.  They can also be appointed by the Chairman of the party, if no committeeman is already serving in a precinct. The only requirements are that a committeeman must be a U.S. citizen, 18 years old, and a registered voter in that precinct. To run for election to a committeeman seat, an interested individual should file a statement of candidacy, loyalty oath, and petition by the deadline date for the primary.

If you are interested in serving as a precinct committeeman in one of the Peoria city precincts, please email City Vice Chairman, Carol Hornickle at cshonrn1@sbcglobal.net.  To serve in one of the county precincts, contact County Vice Chairman, Brian Elsasser at belsasser@frontier.com
