Linn County is divided into precincts. Each precinct has at least two Precinct Committee People (PCPs), male and female. PCPs are the most grassroots-level building block of the Linn County Democratic Central Committee and the Democratic Party of Oregon. They are an important driving force behind registering voters, getting out the word on candidates and helping Democrats understand the party’s structure, process, and platform. They are the people who go out, walk neighborhoods, and connect with and activate Oregonians, talking to Democratic and non-affiliated voters. PCPs also vote at Linn County Democratic Central Committee meetings. For more information or to receive a PCP application form, contact Nonie Harcombe.
The Neighborhood Leader Program offers Democrats an opportunity to reach out to their closest Democratic neighbors – to connect, to hear their concerns and to help them cast informed votes in the upcoming November 2018 general election. Neighborhood Leaders receive a list and map of approximately 35 registered Democrats in their immediate neighborhood. Monthly Sunday afternoon gathering in Albany and Lebanon give Neighborhood Leaders an opportunity to share experiences, problem-solve, receive additional training, participate in mini canvasses and generally have fun! For more information, contact Nancy Greenman.
Be aware of relevant deadlines and dates: Deadlines for city council races for the General Election vary by city. For more election information, see the Linn County Elections web page or the Oregon Secretary of State's "Voting & Elections" web page.
Standing Committees are where much of our Linn County Democrats (LCDCC) work is planned, organized and implemented. There are seven permanent committees: Campaign, Communications, Events, Finance, Organization, Platform and Rules. We hope the description of one or more of the committees, below, will match your interest. Committee Chairs are more than glad to hear your questions and tell you more about their Committee and its work. Please send an email or give them a call.
Come meet and get to know fellow Democrats. The Linn County Democratic Central Committee holds monthly meetings on the first Thursday of each month in the Albany Public Library Meeting Room, 2450 24th Ave. S.W. The meetings start at 6:30 p.m. A social time with light refreshments goes from 6 to 6:30 p.m.
