Elected Membership

All Democrats registered to vote in Humboldt County are eligible to become elected Members of the Democratic Central Committee.

Those interested, including current Members of the Central Committee, must file papers with the Elections & Voter Registration office.

It is important that all potential candidates for the Central Committee understand the time and financial responsibility of becoming Members. A good place to begin deciding if this Committee is for you, is to read the By-Laws.

(Experienced Members have turned in as many as 30 (thirty) signatures. The Elections Office stops checking when they get to 20 (twenty) valid signatures.)

Signatures must be of registered Democrats living in the same Supervisorial District as you do.

Turn in the signatures by March 11. We recommend turning in the names early in case any of your signatures aren’t valid for your District and you need to collect more. (Additionally, the Elections office strongly encourages your to turn in your names early so they can verify them in a timely manner.)

If the same number, or fewer, candidates for your district are qualified, you will be elected as your candidacy is uncontested.

Student Poll Worker Program

California Elections Code section 12302 allows eligible students to be appointed as poll workers on Election Day.

As poll workers, students learn first hand the importance of participating in the electoral process. In addition, they provide much needed support at polling place locations.

In order to eligible to be appointed as a poll worker, a student must be:
A United States citizen;
At least 16 years of age at the time of the election in which he or she will be serving;
A high school student with a grade point average of at least 2.5 (based on a 4.0 scale);
A student in good standing, attending a public or private secondary educational institution.

In addition to gaining experience in the electoral process, students can also earn stipends.
