Michigan Precinct Committeeman Election
Michiganders will elect precinct delegates in more than 5,700 precincts and wards across the state at the Michigan Primary Election on August 5, 2014.
Well, that's not totally true, because as many as half of those precinct delegate positions will remain vacant for lack of interest or lack of awareness.
Do you like the way your party is run in your county? In Michigan? Well, you can change that. But you have to get up off the couch and put yourself on the ballot.
This is another opportunity to achieve a center of power and it won't come around again for another two years.
Most importantly, you have to get on the ballot.
You must live within the precinct boundary.
You must be registered to vote (or 18 years old by the filing deadline, May 6, 2014) and indicate a party affiliation for the party you want to represent. You can change party affiliation at the time you file.
I challenge you. Do you have what it takes to actually accomplish something of lasting effect? Or will you use one of your pat excuses? I've heard them all. (See The Power Is There for the Taking.)
To get the teleconference details, text 'Michigan PC' with your name and e-mail address to (973)498-8066 or sign up at Project City Hall ( http://projectcityhall.blogspot.com/p/sign-up.html ).

How to Determine Your Precinct

How to Get on the Ballot
Getting on the ballot is as easy as filling out the form titled Precinct Delegate Affidavit of Identity and Receipt of Filing. There is no fee or any other disclosures required.
The form must be notarized. Besides the county clerk's office, which may provide notary service at no charge, your bank or local professionals, like real estate agents and accountants, may also provide free notary service. Otherwise, any business center like Kinkos, Staples, UPS Store, provide the service for a small fee. Once notarized submit TWO copies to your county clerk or other authorized election official. (If you get the paper form, I believe, it is a multi-part form with a carbon copy.
For the Republican Party, Michigan has a three-level process.
- Direct election precinct delegates at primary election.
- Election of county officers and state delegates at county committee meetings.
- Election of state officers at state committee meeting.
