Every two years, local party organizations elect a new Executive Board. The rules for this process are explained in the local organization bylaws, and in the state party bylaws. Basically, a nomination committee is formed to solicit and vet possible candidates for the Executive Board positions:
Chair, Vice-Chair (Whidbey), Vice-Chair (Camano), Secretary, Treaurer, State Committee Member 1 and State Committee Member 2.
These positions are elected to office by the county precinct committee officers (PCO) to run local party affairs for two years. PCOs can be ‘assigned’, ‘acting’ or ‘elected’. Only elected PCOs (from even year primary election) can vote for party organization officers, but anyone can run for the party Executive Board positions themselves.
You can read about the nomination process and the duties of each position here. If you are interested in helping Island County Democrats prepare for 2020 elections and would like to be considered as a candidate for any of these positions, please email the nomination committee (ICDinquiry@gmail.com) and include your name, phone, the positions of interest and residence address.
