Steps to Become Elected

Posted by .

PRECINCT COMMITTEEMEN ELECTIONS WILL NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL 2022. Actual dates will be published as we move into 2022 and the dates are published. 

Precinct committeemen are ELECTED in each primary election and serve a two-year term. The next election is August 2, 2022 but many precincts are NOT full and you can become an appointed PC.

Elected PCs vote on the district, county, and state party leadership as well as the party platform.

Becoming an elected PC isn’t difficult; most PCs who run are elected. If you are a registered Republican, you’re qualified to be a Republican PC. Like a candidate for any other elected office, there are signatures to gather and paperwork to file. Here’s a step-by-step guide to the process.

Instructions below are for the 2022 election: 

Step 1

  • Find your district and precinct.
  • Verify that you’re registered as a Republican at your current home address.

Step 2

  • Download and complete the Nomination Paper Declaration of Qualification.

Step 3

  • Fill out the form.

Step 4

  • File your completed affidavit of qualification and signature petition form with signatures. You can mail or hand-deliver them to any branch of the County Recorder’s Office. Note: You do NOT have to turn this paperwork into the Chairman of your district. You can personally mail it or hand-deliver it to the County Recorder’s office. 
  • You can begin to file PC paperwork on – date will be published in 2022. Completed forms must be must be received by 5:00pm on – date will be published in 2022. (postmarks do not count)
  • You can mail your PC paperwork to: Elections MCTEC Office, 510 S. Third Avenue Phoenix, AZ 85003.  Again, please note that if you decide to mail it, it must be received by 5pm on – date will be published in 2022…postmarks do NOT count.
  • If you need help, contact your LD leadership and they will help you.


After the write-in deadline (which will be added here once it is published in 2022) the County Recorder’s Office will publish a list of candidates. Verify that your name is on the list.

Step 6

As of (date will be posted in 2022), if there are more available positions than candidates, your name will not appear on the ballot, but you will be elected. If there are more candidates than available positions, your name will appear on the ballot.
