Become a Precinct Delegate: 1-2-3
Check your voter registration card to identify which municipality (city or township), ward (# – only in some large cities), and precinct (#) you reside in.
You can also search the Secretary of State website for this information.
Find the affidavit at the link below. Complete all fields on the affidavit, but hold signature. Sign the affidavit in the presence of a notary. A notary can be found at your local bank. Make a copy of the affidavit. File the original copy with the county clerk: submit via mail or in-person and verify receipt.
Elevation to Vacant Seats
County political parties may hold a vote at county conventions to elevate precinct delegates to fill vacant seats.
If you miss the deadline for filing the Affidavit of Identity, you may still have an opportunity to win in the primary election as a “write-in candidate”. Ask the county clerk for a list of all precinct delegate candidates – if fewer people filed for precinct delegate than allotted seats available in your precinct, your chances of being elected are still quite high.
Ask a few of your neighbors to fill in the oval next to one of the blank spaces for precinct delegate on their ballot and write in your name, spelled exactly as you wrote it on your Declaration of Intent.
