"The most important job I ever had was precinct captain" - Harry Truman, 33rd President of the United States
Precinct Development Coordinators Deb Pierce and Bob Fine welcome anyone who wants to help build community among Democrats on their block, in their neighborhood or in their voting precinct. "Our vision is to develop a corps of great precinct volunteers, focused on our shared Democratic values, to strengthen the Democratic presence in Manatee County. That’s how we elect Democrats to office up and down the ticket,” says Bob. Deb adds that each precinct has its own character and the Democratic Party relies on people with local knowledge: precinct captains.
Precinct captains are the soul of the Democratic Party throughout the nation and here in Manatee County; the precinct is the basic unit of political organization. Don't know which precinct is yours? Find out on the Supervisor of Elections website at https://www.votemanatee.com/Election-Information/Precinct-Finder-Sample-Ballots. The 70 precincts of Manatee County are grouped into 5 areas, corresponding to the five County Commission and School Board districts.
Coordinators for each of the five areas work with the precinct captains in their areas to forward the core mission of the Manatee County Democratic Party: to get Democrats elected. And within precincts, volunteers such as block captains support precinct captains by working within neighborhoods. Together, our precinct volunteers work to improve voter participation in low-turnout precincts and maintain high turnout in precincts with traditionally strong voter participation. Typical ways precinct and block captains connect with their voters include email, phone, postcards, canvassing and “meet & greets.” Our precinct development team will provide you with the support, training and tools to help these efforts work.
If precinct work is where you think you will find your home in the Manatee County Democratic Party, our volunteer coordinator, Cynthia Metzler (firstname.lastname@example.org) will connect you to the appropriate Area Coordinator or Precinct Captain. Deb and Bob encourage you to step up and make a difference! You can reach them at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
