Island County is divided into 48 neighborhoods called precincts. Most precincts have elected a Precinct Committee Officer (PCO), who serves as the political representative for that neighborhood for a particular party. PCOs walk their precinct on behalf of their party before each election, making sure their neighbors are registered voters, handing out election materials, and reminding people to vote. They also are key players in spreading the word about Democratic candidates! PCOs are elected every two years as part of the Democratic primary. It is also possible to be appointed as a PCO between elections, or to be appointed as an Acting PCO for a precinct in which you do not reside.
