It is comprised of the following elected or appointed representatives:

  • Members representing each District Post, 5 or more of which are assigned to each Party Election District (each Party Election District is the same as each district of the City Council);

Election to the Committee

To become a Post Member for the Democratic Party, you must be a registered voter who lives in the district you are trying to represent, and you must consider yourself a Democrat. It is highly preferred that Post Members vote in at least one of the previous two Democratic Primaries prior to an election or appointment. You cannot be a Post Member if you are a registered Republican.

Elections for the Post Committee occur in the following manner:

  • one half of the Post Committee representing even-numbered Post Positions are elected every Presidential Election year;
  • the other half of the Post Committee representing odd-numbered Post Positions are elected every Gubernatorial Election year.

Post Members are elected by incumbent members to four-year terms, but half of the Committee will be selected by the Executive Committee to serve two-year terms following City Council reapportionment in order to realign with the Presidential/Gubernatorial election cycle. Post Committee elections are held at a business meeting within 45 days after the General Primary.
