HOUSTON AREA DEMOCRATIC PARTIES

HOW TO BECOME A PRECINCT CHAIR

So, are you interested in being a precinct chair? Here are the steps you will need to take:

  1. Find out what precinct you're in:
  2. See if there is currently a precinct chair for your precinct HERE
  3. If there is not a precinct chair currently listed for your precinct and you would like to step up and make a difference, begin the process by contacting your county's Democratic Party (see HOUSTON AREA DEMOCRATIC PARTIES section above for links)

WHO REPRESENTS ME?

In these difficult political times, it is crucial to know not just who represents you in Congress and the Texas Legislature, but also how to contact that person's office. As a constituent, you are their employer and it is your right to let your opinion be known about legislation.

Obviously the first step is identifying who exactly represents you. You should keep handy the contact information for your two US Senators, your US Congressional Member, your State Senator, and your State Representative. There are several sites that can perform this service for you, but here are my recommendations:

  1. Who Represents Me (maintained by the Texas Legislature)
  2. Who Are My Representatives (maintained by Politiwatch)
  3. Find Your Elected Officials (maintained by Common Cause)
  4. Find Your Reps 
  5. Contacting Congress (Members of Congress only)

Each of these services should provide you with a link to each representative's webpage that contains contact information.
