BE A PRECINCT LEADER
A precinct is the smallest political subdivision in a state. Precinct Leaders are community members nominated to oversee individual precincts. Their responsibility is to engage directly with voters in a small, geographic area. Precinct Leaders also sit on the Polk County Central Committee, which conducts the local business of the County Party. Precinct Chairs organize their precincts to get the party message to the individual voter, and help carry out the party program to get voters to the polls on Election Day. Each Precinct Leader automatically serves as a member of the Polk County Central Committee, which is the governing body of Polk County.
The Polk County Central Committee meets the Fourth Monday every month except May and December, 6:30 PM at Polk County River Place, 2309 Euclid Ave., Des Moines

HOW TO BECOME A PRECINCT LEADER
Applicants are nominated for an open precinct position at one meeting and voted upon at the next. The Polk County Central Committee is the voting body of the county party and meets monthly. Attendance is important. If a precinct has no leader, it’s considered to be “vacant.”
Precinct Leader qualifications:
be 18 or older
be a registered voter
reside in that precinct
precinct leaders can’t be elected officials or candidates for county, state or federal office.
Precinct leaders are volunteers and are not paid.
Precinct leader's contact information will be posted on the Ankeny Area Democrats web site. An important part of being a Precinct Leader is being accessible and visible as a Democrat in your community.
