Does Your Precinct Have an Elected Precinct Chair?

Indiana provides for each precinct in the state to elect a Precinct Chair, which could make Indiana one of the most participatory states in the country.  But in many precincts, no one has stepped forward to play this important grassroots organizing role. 

Check out this map of LaPorte County Precincts.  See if your precinct has an elected Precinct Chair. This map shows the precincts in LaPorte County with Democratic Appointed Precinct Chairs (APCs). In these precincts, no one filed to run for the spot. Of LaPorte County's 92 precincts, no one ran in 46 precincts. Our County Democratic Chair appointed people to fill the vacancies. Precincts not shown have Elected Precinct Chairs (EPCs). We encourage incumbent EPCs to run again.

Note that Michigan City has only a few precincts with APCs, but LaPorte has many.

The office of Precinct Chair can be easily won. It's likely that whoever runs in these 46 precincts will be the only one candidate to file, and will win by default. But those who step up will help further energize the LaPorte County Democratic Party.

Caveat: As of Dec. 28, the County Commissioners have not yet approved the newly redistricted County jurisdictions. The map above shows the old boundaries. In 2021, the State Legislature split the City of LaPorte into 2 Congressional Districts. About 5 precincts in LaPorte had to be redrawn. But, this map will get you started.

As Precinct Chair, you would be the elected representative of the LaPorte Democratic Party for your immediate neighborhood, helping your neighbors register to vote, learn about candidates, and get out to vote.  And when one of your Democratic elected officials resigns, you would get to vote in the Caucus to replace them – as was done when Sen. Karen Tallian resigned, effective November 1. You would get to appoint a Vice Chair of the opposite sex to help you mobilize your precinct for Democratic candidates.
