How to File or Refile to be a Precinct Chair

Collin County Democratic Party Precinct Chairs are the backbone of the party. We hope you consider applying to be on the ballot this cycle! The 2020-2022 term of office is scheduled to end on June 12, 2022, twenty days after the Primary Runoff Election. To serve for the 2022-2024 term you must re-apply. Some precinct boundaries have changed and you may be in a different precinct as of January 1, 2022. New voter registration cards are being mailed now and your new card will have your updated precinct. If you want to check your precinct before you receive your card, you may check here.

The filing period for Precinct Chairs for the 2022-2024 term of office will open on Saturday, January 15, 2022, and will end Saturday, February 12, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. For 2022, Precinct Chairs will be elected in the Primary Runoff on Tuesday May 24, 2022, by plurality, not on the regular Primary March 1.

    • Scan the notarized application and email to the County Chair at, the CCDP Secretary at, or our Primary Administrator at
    • Send the notarized application by postal mail or courier service to the party office at 1915 N. Central Expressway, Suite 150, Plano, TX 75075. NOTE: the application must be received by the deadline, so please make sure you send it in time to arrive before the deadline.
    • In-person:

We are working to have a Notary Public available for some of these periods. Please check to see if we'll have one before you come over. Thank you for applying!
