Precinct Chairs (there are 11 in Kendall County) coordinate voter contact and the “boots on the ground” work for the Kendall County Democratic Party (KCDP). Precinct chairs must live in the precinct. (A “precinct captain” is someone who lives in one precinct but coordinates activities in a different precinct.) Precinct chairs are elected every two years during the primary (interim openings are elected by the County Executive Committee). Current precinct openings:
- 2080 (Fair Oaks Ranch and south Boerne)
- 2120 (east Boerne and north up FM474)
- 4070 (rural western Kendall County)
- All precincts need Deputy Chairs.
