What is the role of a County Committee Member?
There are four County Committee seats in each municipal election district: one male Democrat, one female Democrat, one male Republican, and one female Republican. Statewide, there are over 24,000 seats. Half of these are reserved for women.
A county committee person represents an average of 350 of their neighbors. They represent the interests of their neighbors at local Democrat or Republican meetings.
In Delanco, the Republican County Committee selects the candidates who will run for the Republican Party at the municipal level. They also have a say in selecting the Republican candidates for County and State offices. In a small town like Delanco, their greatest role is working to get our candidates elected – from helping to write literature, to delivering flyers door to door. They can be your source for voter information and voter registration forms, including requests for absentee ballots. Is it much work? Not really, we meet several times a year, with our most intense activity occurring in the fall as we work towards the November election.
All districts are currently represented.
County Committee members are elected every two years in the state primary election. The most recent election was in the Apr 2012 Primary and will run un-opposed in the Nov 2012 election
To be considered for County Committee, you must be 18, you must be a declared member the Republican Party and you must be registered to vote in your local election district. You can declare your party at any time throughout the year by completing a simple party declaration card.
If you would like to spice up your life by serving as a County Committee member, watch for vacancies to be listed above, please call or email the Chairman. In the mean time become an active Club member and help your Committee person at election time deliver flyers or serve as a challenger at the polls at election time.
