Feel the spark to get involved?

Become a Republican Precinct Committee Man or Woman.

Precinct Committee Men and Women include precinct committeemen and committeewomen from all Weston County precincts. Under Wyoming law, Republican voters from each precinct may elect at least one man and one woman to serve as their precinct representatives. Essentially, Precinct Committee Men and Women are the closest elected officials to the voters.

If you’re interested, we welcome you to step forward and serve your local Party and your community.

What do Precinct Committee Men and Women do?

Attend Central Committee Meetings and County Conventions

Generally, there are multiple Central Committee meetings and one County Conventions during the 2-year term commitment that Precinct Committee Men and Women are expected to attend and participate in. As representatives, Precinct Committee Men and Women make up the voting body at these meetings & conventions.

Elect Local Republican Party Leadership

As a voting body in the Weston County Republican Party Central Committee, Precinct Committee Men and Women elect the Weston County Republican Party Executive Board (Officers) who serve on the Wyoming State Republican Party Central Committee, develop the Party Platform, and elect Wyoming State Republican Party Officers.

Elect Republican Delegates to State Convention

Every four years, the Precinct Committee Men and Women vote at a County Convention for delegates to the State Convention. These delegates can be from any precinct, but must be registered Republican voters. During the State Convention, these county delegates will elect state delegates who will attend the RNC Convention.



So what’s the big picture?

Let’s review - precincts are the districts that make up the county, counties are the districts that make up the state, and the states make up the country. Therefore, Precinct Committee Men and Women represent their perspective precincts at County Conventions and elect the county officers (Weston County Republican Party Executive Board), the county officers represent their county at State Conventions and elect state officers, and the state officers represent our state at National Republican Conventions where they elect national officers.

It’s a beautiful American system - a true Representative Republic - and it all starts with YOU.
