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.
