Application for Precinct Chair Appointment

Use this application process to request that your Senatorial District’s Democratic Party leadership nominate you for a precinct chair appointment to a vacant precinct. If you are not sure whether your precinct is vacant, check here to find out.

The position of Precinct Chair is a Democratic Party office, elected every two years in Democratic Primary elections. Each Precinct Chair represents the voting precinct in which he/she lives, and in our county serves on the Harris County Democratic Party (HCDP) County Executive Committee (CEC). A precinct with no precinct chair is referred to as a “vacant” precinct. Before and after primary elections, County parties may appoint precinct chairs to serve in vacant precincts.

As a Democratic Precinct Chair, you should be willing and able to:

  • Attend quarterly HCDP CEC meetings as a voting member.
  • Contact Democrats who live in your precinct, and remind them to vote in all elections.
  • Support Democratic candidates/officeholders on your precinct’s ballot.
  • Not openly endorse candidates/officeholders from any other political party.

As a Democratic Precinct Chair, you will be given priority if you wish to serve as an Election Judge at your poll location. However, Precinct Chairs are not required to be Election Judges.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Democratic Precinct Chair!
