POLK NC Dems
small county - Big Tent
The voting precinct is the smallest unit of organization of the North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP). The precinct organization is critical to the planning of our Getting Out the Vote efforts in Polk County. Each year precinct organization meetings are held during a time period designated by the NCDP. At this meeting the precinct officers (Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary/Treasurer) will be confirmed for the next 2 years. Delegates to our District Convention will be named.
2022 Annual Precinct Organization Meetings
Normally we would hold a joint meeting with all 7 Polk County precincts. However, this year in consideration of mitigating the risk of Covid infections, we will schedule each precinct meeting separately over the 5 days assigned by the NCDP (February 15-19). The meetings will be at PCDP Headquarters- 64 Ward Street, Columbus, NC.
How to get involved
At least 5 registered Democrats residing in the precinct must attend the meeting to constitute a quorum. A quorum is needed for business to occur. We hope more than this number of people attend. There is no limit. This can be an excellent way to participate in our political and democratic process.
PLEASE CONTACT YOUR PRECINCT CHAIR TO LET THEM KNOW YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND AND TO DISCUSS DAYS AND TIMES THAT WORK BEST FOR YOU.
Precinct Chairs will decide which morning, afternoon, or evening on February 15-19 after conferring with precinct residents who will be attending. I will establish a final schedule of precinct meetings that will be published in a later newsletter Email.
Precinct Chairs listed here. See Precinct Map on this Page.
N.B. If you are a resident of Columbus 7 John Johnson has stepped in to be the new precinct Chair replacing Jim Clarke who moved out of the county.
It is so important that we are strong and committed to electing Democrats!
So get involved and see how all this works from the ground floor. Meet your precinct officers and others in your precinct. I hope to attend all 7 meetings to talk about plans for GETTING OUT THE VOTE in Polk County!
