What precinct am I in?
Every county in America is divided up into precincts. Nash County has 24.
If you’re not sure which precinct you’re in (or if you want to find out if you’re registered to vote), use the voter search below or visit the North Carolina State Board of Elections page.
You’ll see a list of people with your name – click on YOU and on the next screen, at the top of the second column, you’ll see your precinct name.
Elections are won (or lost) at the grassroots level so it’s critical we organize effectively to identify and support candidates who promote and defend our values. We can win when we connect with our neighbors, register people to vote and then Get Out the Vote through rallies, phone-banking and canvassing.
An “organized” precinct has a voice at the annual Democratic Conventions as it participates in decision making. To be organized a precinct needs, at a minimum, five registered Democrats. Three will be precinct officers (Chair, Vice Chair & Secretary/Treasurer and two (or more) are general members. These folks are precinct delegates to the annual county convention.
Precinct organization and duties are described in the North Carolina Democratic Party Plan of Organization – Section 1.00. You can down load the Plan from the State Party website . Take some time to acquaint yourselves with how the party functions and the resources it provides.
If all this all sounds pretty dry – it doesn’t have to be! Consider yourself a Community Energizer where you’ll meet new people, be exposed to new ideas and enhance your neighborhood.
