Committeemen and Committeewomen are typically chosen by voters in a primary election at the local level, such as a ward or township. They serve as members of their party's central committee for a city or county, which then elects members of the state party's committee. The state party members in turn choose the committee members for the national party organizations such as the Democratic National Committee or the Republican National Committee.

On a local level, committeemen and committeewomen are generally responsible for helping to identify party supporters within their jurisdicition and get them to vote at election time. In some older American cities, committeemen and women still have significant influence in distributing patronage jobs to their supporters within city government.

**Just heard on Ron Paul Radio that being on a committee is more important than a Delegate. Committee people are needed for endorsement. Committee people elect judges too.. State counties decide what kind of machines they want and this is where committee plays a role.....

MOVE YOUR WHOLE DAMN MEET UP GROUP INTO THE COMMITTEE. MILLIONS OF DOLLAR DON'T CONVERT INTO COMMITTEE. YOU GOTTA GET UP AND GO...

I just don't hear anybody discussing this here. what's going on???????

I was able to save the discussion on committee in mp3 format. I had to cut it at one point because of the size (10 MB) - http://ronpaul.profusehost.net/ron-paul-committee.mp3

i contacted my county GOP chair (primarily to see about becoming a delegate) and after one screening question "are you a conservative?" he practically begged me to become a committeeman.

This is great! Can you please explain in great detail how this process went down?

The second I turned 18 I registered and started looking this shit up, the only problem was that there was nothing on the internet to teach you how to run for office. I talked to a few "adults" about it and they told me to wait until I was old enough. Typical shit you here from people who haven't done a fucking thing with their lives. How pathetic. Now at 24, this whole Ron Paul movement has re sparked my interest. I'm much more aggressive and will at least try this time.

Please anyone who has experience with running for ANY office position write your experience.

There's not really much campaigning that you need to worry about. Here's the list of results from Licking County, Ohio (my county) from 2004. If you go to the bottom you'll see that many, many, many County Central Committee spots had no candidate at all. Some of the write-in's who won did so with 1 vote. So, basically, just talk to your family, friends, and a few neighbors and you should be able to get a committee spot. You can contact your county board of elections office to find out more about your precinct and the details involved for you specifically.

The only thing that happens at the parish level in Louisiana are fist fights.
