How to Run For Precinct Committee Person



I'm a Volunteer?

First off - thank you for being a Duval Dems volunteer. You are the backbone of the DEC and should have a voice at the table. Precinct Captains are official voting members of the DEC and constitute the governing body of the local party. Each Precinct Captain represents the Democrats within their neighborhood and acts as their voice within the DEC. Every four (4) years 2 men and 2 women are elected on the August Primary ballot from each precinct in Duval County. If you don't have any competition, you will win automatically. Once elected, your term will begin in December 2020 to November 2024.

If you are interested in officially joining the DEC you must fill out a Candidate Oath, have it notarized, and turn it into the DEC (info@duvaldems.org). As a courtesy, every Wednesday, and Friday, Cathy Heffernan, our DEC Secretary will be available at the DEC HQ from 3PM - 6PM to notarize Candidate Oaths. To set up an appointment, click here. You can also have your oath notarized by any Florida Notary. Once your Candidate Oath is completed and notarized, please submit it to the DEC by Friday, June 5. You can turn-in your oath in-person at the Duval Dems HQ (during office hours) or email it to us at info@duvaldems.org.

I'm a Current Precinct Captain?

Precinct Captains interested in continuing in their positions must fill out a Candidate Oath, have it notarized and turn it into the DEC (info@duvaldems.org). Remember all terms of office for current Precinct Captains end on November 30, 2020. Every Wednesday and Friday, Cathy Heffernan, our DEC Secretary will be available at the DEC HQ from 3PM - 6PM to notarize Candidate Oaths. To set up an appointment, click here.

Once your Candidate Oath is completed and notarized, please submit it to the DEC by Friday, June 5, 2020. You can turn-in your oath in-person at the Duval Dems HQ (during office hours) or email it to us at info@duvaldems.org.

Why Is This Important?

Presidential Election years are organizational years for county executive committees. This means all of our current DEC members' terms expire on November 30 and we will have an Organizational Meeting in December to elect officers.

Only those who file a Candidate Oath during the qualifying period (June 8 - June 12) AND win the August Primary Election will be eligible to continue as members and vote for DEC officers at our DEC's December Organizational Meeting. If you have no competition within your precinct, you will win your seat automatically.
