Precinct chair is the fundamental building block of the party

The party leader in the voting precinct is the precinct chair, who is elected by the voters in the precinct in the Democratic Primary. The precinct chair is the go-to person for all Democratic precinct activity. Every precinct chair is a standing member of the Brazos County Democratic Party Executive Committee. An active, effective precinct chair makes an enormous difference in the success of the Party and our candidates.
