Linn County is divided into precincts. Each precinct has 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 progressive Oregonians, talking to independent, unaffiliated and Democratic voters alike. 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 May 2018 primary and November 2018 general election. Neighborhood Leaders receive a list and map of approximately 35 registered Democrats in their immediate neighborhood. Monthly potlucks that started this fall in Albany and Lebanon give Neighborhood Leaders an opportunity to share experiences, problem-solve, receive additional training, and generally have fun! For more information, contact Nancy Greenman.
Be aware of relevant deadlines and dates: Each elected position has a date by which candidates must file their official intention to run. Filing deadline for the May 16 Primary Election was March 6. Deadlines for the General Election vary depending on the race. 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 six permanent committees: Campaign, Finance, Organization, Platform, Publicity 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.
