Precinct committee officers

The Secretary of State’s Office is asking people who filed for precinct committee officer seats online on Monday and Tuesday to file again. The office contacted the candidates Tuesday with instructions.

The original filing system required the candidate to choose a party but did not require candidates to declare membership with the appropriate political party. The system has since been updated. The change applies only to PCO positions; no other offices are affected.
