Change Starts
In Each Neighborhood


Precinct Delegates (PD) are the boots on the ground for elections. 

PDs are elected local representatives of the Democratic Party. As a PD, you'll work in your neighborhood to inform Democratic voters about Democratic candidates, plus local, city and school board issues, as well as where and how to vote. 

What would you have to do?

You'll be provided with full training and a support team, as well as a list of Democratic voters in your neighborhood. Once trained, you can work alone, with other Precinct Delegates, or with family and friends.


How you communicate with voters is up to you.

  • Knock on doors to speak directly with voters

  • Leave relevant literature on a voter's doorstep

  • Send emails

  • Send texts

  • Post on neighborhood websites like NextDoor

  • Address direct mail messages

The Ultimate Goal: Turn out voters who are informed and prepared.
