Map of Harris County Precinct Chairs (Republican & Democrat)

Jeff Reichman on in Democracy, Maps

Every county in Texas is divided into voting precincts. The two major parties have precinct chairs who serve as election judges, as well as manage a ton of on-the-ground activities for the party.

A precinct chair is the lowest level of elected office. It is an unpaid, volunteer position that often involves block walking, voter mobilization, keeping the neighborhood connected to city and state-wide issues, and generally representing the political party and its candidates. It is a great way to get involved with party politics.

But there are a ton of precincts, and not every precinct has a chair. So both parties are always on the lookout for new precinct chairs. I built this map to give a real-time look at where there are precinct chair vacancies for the two major parties.

If this is something you want to do, you can learn more about becoming a Republican or a Democrat precinct chair from the respective parties. Precinct chairs are required to register with the Texas Secretary of State, which is where I sourced this data.

If you would like a political party precinct chair map for your Texas county, please let me know.
