Precinct Information

Carteret County is divided into precincts for the purpose of voting. All residents of a precinct vote at the same “polling place” which is usually located within that precinct. Precincts may be “organized,” meaning they have a precinct chairman, or “unorganized,” meaning they do not have a precinct chairman. Being organized or unorganized as a precinct determines how votes are counted at the Carteret County GOP Convention. Being organized or unorganized has no effect on your voting in primaries, general, or other elections.

Most precincts in Carteret County are “organized” and have a Chair; some also have a Vice-Chair. These officers are elected in odd-numbered years at the annual Precinct Meeting. This meeting is called by the County Party and held in February or March. Notice of the date, time and place is published in the Carteret County News Times by the Carteret County Republican Party. Attendees at the Precinct Meeting select delegates to represent them at the County Convention, usually held in March of each year. Any Republican registered as of January 31st of that year, may attend his/her respective precinct meeting and vote. More information about Precincts can be found in the Carteret County GOP Plan of Organization.

Like most groups, precincts are only as strong as their members. Please take a minute to read about duties of a Precinct Chairman and Vice-Chair and other ways to be involved in your neighborhood.

Volunteering In My Precinct

What are the duties of the Precinct Chairman?

The most important thing to remember about being a precinct chairman is that you are never alone. There are party members who will gladly assist. A short training session is held once a year at CCGOP Headquarters to help you learn what you can do for your precinct. The following “duties” are suggestions of how you can get your precinct involved with the local Republican party.

1. Identify and register voters in your precinct

This provides an opportunity to meet your neighbors and get to know your neighborhood. You can obtain a listed of registered voters in your precinct from the Board of Elections. You don’t have to do this alone. You can recruit other Republicans to help, perhaps by holding a Voter Registration Drive in the neighborhood.

2. Informing voters as to political events and helping turn out the vote

Have monthly meetings and big events that you can invite your neighbors to. Great way to get involved and stay up to date with what is going on in politics. Turning out Republican voters is important in every election

3. Attend County Executive Committee Meetings

As Chairman or Vice-Chairman, you are entitled to vote at County Executive Committee Meetings and help decide matters that affect your county.

4. Work at the polls and recruit people to work at the polls

We need people to work outside the polls passing out literature, people inside as Poll Observers, and people who go through the training to become a Precinct Election Official.

5. Running the Precinct Convention

The Precinct Convention is held once a year. Precinct Officers (Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Secretary) are elected in odd-numbered years. It is a short meeting, usually held at a convenient location within your Precinct, or possibly at GOP Party Headquarters, on a Saturday morning in February or March. The GOP Party places an announcement in the Carteret County News Times about the Precinct Convention stating the date, various locations, times, and points of contact.

What are the duties of the Precinct Vice-Chairman?

1. Attend County Executive Committee Meetings.
2. Assist the Precinct Chairman with their duties and projects.
3. Serve as the Precinct Convention Chairman in the absence of the Precinct Chairman.

How can you get involved other than being a Precinct Officer?

There are many ways to help the Republican Party in your precinct without serving as a Precinct Officer.

Here are a few examples:

  • Volunteer to go door-to-door passing out GOP Information
  • Assist with GOP surveys around election time.
  • Assist with a Voter Registration Drive.
  • Host a “Get to Know the Candidates” gathering at your home or help organize such a gathering at a larger location and invite all of the precincts.
  • Attend your “Precinct” and “County” Conventions.
  • Participate in social events at GOP Headquarters by keeping up with the GOP Calendar and Upcoming Events section of the GOP Web Site.
  • Place signs within your precinct for Republican candidates before elections.
  • Work the polls during Early Voting and/or on Election Day doing things such as:
    • Passing out Republican literature outside the polling place.
    • Become a “Poll Observer” and watch what goes on inside the polling place during voting (this job requires a short training class usually done at GOP Party Headquarters).
    • Become a “Precinct Election Official” (judge, check-in person, or observer) This requires training through the County Board of Elections. For more information on becoming a “Precinct Election Official” go to:

If you want to be involved in any way, let the county party know by completing a volunteer form found under the “Volunteer” Icon on our Home page, or by submitting the “Contact Us” form on this page. The Carteret County GOP encourages all registered Republicans to stay informed about and active in local politics, as well as state and federal politics.
