“Organize the whole state, so that every Whig can be brought to the polls . . . divide the county into small districts, and . . . appoint in each a sub-committee . . . make a perfect list of all the voters and . . . ascertain with certainty for whom they will vote . . . keep a constant watch on the doubtful voters and have them TALKED TO by those IN WHOM THEY HAVE THE MOST CONFIDENCE, . . . and on election days see that every Whig is brought to the polls.”

Abraham Lincoln, February 21, 1840

These words are just as valuable today as they were in 1840.  The Washoe County Republican Party Precinct Captain Project is a grassroots effort to connect with voters in our own neighborhoods. Our goal is to strengthen the Republican presence in our communities, resisting the progressive ideals of the Nevada Democrat Party, now headed by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).


What does a Precinct Captain do?

  • Represent the Republican Party in your neighborhood
  • Reach out and meet your neighbors by phone and door-to-door, initiating discussions and inviting them to precinct meetings (discussion groups)
  • Improve communication by bringing voters’ opinions back to the County Republican Party and Republican candidates
  • Inform voters on the party platform differences and provide information on Republican candidates
  • Help to get out the vote, including the collection of mail-in ballots according to Nevada Assembly Bill 321 (passed in July 2021).
  • Recruit other volunteers who want to assist in our efforts

What are the prerequisites for becoming a PC?

  • A love of our county, state, and country
  • A desire to elect Republicans to county and state offices
  • Be a resident of Washoe County and a registered Republican.
