Precincts and PCPs

About Precinct Persons (PCPs)

Precinct Committee Persons are the building blocks of the Democratic Party of Oregon. They are voted on locally and represent precincts of 250 registered voters. But there are additional responsibilities, powers and opportunities vested in these grassroots elected officials.

PCPs are the critical 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, by talking to independent, unaffiliated, and Democratic voters alike. These are completely volunteer positions with time commitment and responsibilities largely set by each PCP individually.

The Curry County Democrats is the highest authority in county party policies. This body has the authority to adopt rules (called Bylaws) or resolutions covering any matter of party government within the county. Additionally, this is the body that establishes the policies, articulates the beliefs, and establishes the standard of all local Democratic candidates. These basic policies, beliefs, and standards are then passed on to the State and National party for action.

The Curry County Democrats has the power to call for and receive reports from the Executive Committee, the standing committees, and any special or ad hoc committees; act upon proposed resolutions; and take such action as it deems appropriate to further the purpose and goals of the Democratic Party.

 The Curry County Democrats membership is made up of all Democratic Precinct Committee Persons (PCPs) elected or appointed in Curry County and any Democratic legislator who lives in and is a PCP of another county and who represents a portion of Curry County.

The Curry County Democrats and its membership are active locally in numerous projects and issues, on a wide variety of interests and are dedicated to making people’s lives better.


  1. We believe that we can all work together to build a better society – that “we’re all in this together” is a better philosophy than “you’re on your own.”
  2. We hold that the Constitution of the United States of America, in its entirety, is the supreme law of the land, and no other document, religious or secular, shall be held above it.
  3. We value compassion, generosity of spirit, and willingness to come to the aid of others. We are motivated by optimism and hope, not fear and cynicism.
  4. We believe that the role of government is to provide every person with opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, regardless or race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or accident of birth.
  5. We believe that our economic success depends on the shared prosperity of all people, not the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a privileged few.
  6. We believe that our shared prosperity and competitiveness in the world market depends on the ability of every member of our community to reach their full potential through access to quality, affordable education.
  7. We believe that universal access to quality, affordable health care is both an individual right and a common good for society as a whole.
  8. We believe in finding practical, innovative solutions to the problems of our community, state and nation. Yesterday’s solutions can’t solve tomorrow’s problems.
  9. We believe that a clean environment is essential to the wellbeing of our community and our planet, and that no one has the right to the unsustainable exploitation of the earth’s resources for profit or personal gain.
  10. We understand that hard-­earned tax dollars paid by the middle class and poor should not be used to subsidize tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy. Those who benefit most from society should contribute the most.
  11. We respect a woman’s right to make her own choices for herself and her family with respect to her health and her body.
  12. We hold the right to vote as fundamental to our democratic system of government and that no law, regulation, or administrative action should limit the ability of all adult citizens to exercise the right to vote and to have those votes accurately counted.
  13. We support the constitutional right of every law­abiding adult to keep and bear arms for self defense, hunting, and recreation.
  14. We believe that secure borders are essential to national security. We advocate ending unauthorized immigration through improved border security, by requiring employers to give priority to hiring U.S. citizens at a fair market-­based wage, and by implementing a guest worker program for documented insistence where the domestic labor supply proves to be insufficient to meet demand.
  15. We assert that constitutional rights should apply only to natural people, not legal entities created by government. We therefore support a constitutional amendment specifying that rights enumerated in the Constitution apply only to natural people.
  16. We honor the constitutionally guaranteed right of free speech and assert that this right is compromised when money is linked under the law to political speech. We therefore support a Constitutional amendment to permit state and federal governments to set limits on the use of money in political speech.


  • Increase Voter Engagement and Turnout: voter registration drives, education campaigns, and get-out-the-vote efforts. This helps to ensure that more people in our community are informed and engaged in the democratic process, ultimately leading to a more representative and accountable government.
  • Balance Political Influence: In our area, political power is weighted towards the Republicans. Fostering a more diverse and dynamic political environment leads to more balanced policy-making that reflects a wider range of perspectives.
  • Promoting Democratic Values and Policies: We support and promote issues like affordable healthcare, climate change, civil rights, and social justice and seek to advance these causes at a grassroots level.
  • Building Stronger Communities: The Curry Democrats invest time and effort supporting community development initiatives. These efforts can include programs for education, public health, housing, and job creation, making your community a better place to live.
  • Funding Grassroots Campaigns: The Curry County Democrats often support candidates running for city councils, school boards, state legislatures, and other local positions. These candidates play a vital role in shaping policies that directly impact our community.
