    In the State of Oregon, County Clerk’s (election officials) are looking at ways to reform PCP (Precinct Committee Person) elections to streamline, simplify and reduce costs. We are conversing and working with the state major political parties to try and reform the process but are wanting information from other states to how these elections are conducted. Your responses would be greatly appreciated!

    1 – Does the elections office conduct an election for PCP’s ( Precinct Committee Persons)

    2 – If so:
    a) What election are they on the ballot (Primary, General, Special, etc.)
    b) How often are the elections (are they all 2 years or 4 year terms…. or do they rotate)
    c) Do the elections officials budgets (county, city, state) pay election costs or do the political parties pay for election costs?
    d) Does the jurisdiction allow write-ins?

    3 – If not, do the parties conduct their own PCP elections?

    4- How many PCP’s per party in the jurisdiction (county, city, etc.)?

    4 – Contact person and email address if we want to follow up!

    Thank you so very much!
