Republican Precinct Project_PageThe Republican Precinct Project is the only statewide effort dedicated to reducing the committeeman vacancy rate that currently exists in Illinois.

 

The goal of the Republican Precinct Project is to fill every Republican Precinct Committeeman position in every county in Illinois – with truly dedicated, pro-GOP Platform, hard working volunteers. This will require the participation of thousands of reform-minded Republicans.

 

For more information about the role of a Republican Precinct Committeeman, including some frequently asked questions about the position, read What is a Republican Precinct Committeeman?

 

NOTE: The instructions here are applicable to every Illinois county EXCEPT for Cook County. Cook has a unique structure under Illinois law and Precinct Committeemen are not elected by either the Republicans or Democrats.
