Become a Precinct Committeeman or Committeewoman
Do you want to make a difference in Osceola County? You can get involved in our Republican Executive Committee (OCREC) by joining the party and becoming a Precinct Committeeman or Committeewoman. Florida allows two representatives, one man and one woman, for each 1,000 registered voters in a precinct. The OCREC leadership will advise of the available positions in your precinct. Your voter registration card will indicate the precinct you are in.
The steps are simple!
- If you are not an official member of the Osceola County Republican Party, you will need to join. Attend the next meeting, and alert the check-in person you want to join the OCREC party as a precinct committeeman or woman. You will need to fill out an application. You will need to sign the loyalty oath, as defined by the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), as well as the Candidate Oath (DS-DE 305CM) required by Florida Statute.
- You will need to attend two meetings and an orientation course to learn about the Osceola County Republican Party and your future duties as a precinct committeeman or committeewoman.
- You will then be elected at a meeting where quorum is satisfied. Our OCREC meetings are held the 2nd Monday of each month. Meetings start at 6:30pm at the Knights of Columbus hall located at 2000 Neptune Drive, Kissimmee, 34744.
- You will need to attend all the monthly OCREC meetings. Be sure to sign in, because if you miss 3 consecutive meetings without an excused absence, you will be removed from membership.
Precinct Representatives (PCs) play an important role in achieving our mission. They serve as ambassadors to our County for Republicans. The roles they play in our party:
- Advocate for Republican candidates running for office.
- Encourage and assist in registering Republican voters. This can be through registration drives, staffing booths, and similar activities.
- Participate in campaigns, offering to make calls, support candidates’ events, host events, or other actions which help Republican candidates win.
