Volunteer Precinct captains are the most important position in the Republican Party.  Elections, particularly in Montana, are won at the grassroots, door-to-door level.  Precinct captains are the face of the Party to friends and neighbors, and the essential component of conservative victories on Election Day.

In Montana, we elect two precinct captains – one of each gender – from every precinct in the county. In Yellowstone County, we have 45 precincts and, therefore, 90 precinct captains.

QUALIFICATIONS

To be a precinct captain, you must be a resident of the state of Montana and live in the precinct in which you desire to be elected.

Precinct captain appear on the ballot every two years, during the primary election.  In the event of a vacancy, the Executive Board of the county party may appoint a person to the position.  The Yellowstone County Republican Party has an application process for vacancies.

Precinct Chairs regularly do not accomplish all these ways to help. Everyone has the choice of their level of volunteerism. Please remember….Precinct Chairs are an officially elected position, as directed by Montana State Law.  Persons interested in filling the spots should consider carefully their willingness to fulfill the duties of the position.  If you are interested in becoming a precinct captain, please contact the Central Committee.

Volunteers are the heart of the Republican Party! Thank you for your participation!
