Real political change begins at the local level and there is no section of political geography smaller or more local than the Precinct. By getting involved in the political process at that level you can begin to exert a growing influence on the world around you and do your part in promoting the ideals and principles that American’s have protected for generations.
The Precinct Project has been launched in an effort to help educate and motivate conservatives across the country to become more involved in the political process. Toward that end, we are working to gather and curate an ever-growing amount of information about how to become a Precinct Chairman or Committeeman, how to be effective in that role and how to maximize your impact within the party system.
It is our goal to serve as a nexus of information related to becoming a Precinct Committee member and excelling in that positon. To that end, we will provide general and state specific information about the laws and practices of each state. The information in this site shouldn’t be taken as legal advice but as a primer to help educate voters and those interested in influencing their community. If you have information that you believe would be helpful to this sites’ visitors we would greatly appreciate you sharing it with us. We will work to keep the information on the site as fresh and accurate as possible.
The Precinct Project is powered by The Madison Project and operated in conjunction with some of the nation’s most effective conservative activists. This project would not be possible without the indispensable work of Dan ‘ColdWarrior’ Schultz and Ron Robinson. We are joined in this effort by a number of supporting individuals and organizations. Check out this list of our friends! If you would like to be added, please contact us.
This site will feature blogs and resources written from a variety of perspectives and from a growing number of conservative activists. We are a non-partisan organization but unapologetically conservative. While blogs and resources will necessarily mention America’s major political parties due to the realities of precinct organization we don’t endorse a particular party or candidate. It is our belief that as conservatives become more deeply involved in their precincts that the party of their choice will more fully represent them as a result of their efforts.

Dan has also contributed content to the Concord Project Get Out The Vote efforts including “how to” videos relating to The Neighborhood Precinct Committeeman Strategy and the power of the individual activist in actually delivering votes for candidates. Since the fall of 2008, Dan has recruited hundreds, if not thousands, of precinct committeemen, either directly or indirectly (by teaching others how to do it) through his face-to-face presentations, radio interviews and blogging efforts on a variety of grass roots conservative blogs, including his own. He has also authored Kindle book, Taking Back Your Government: The Neighborhood Precinct Committeeman Strategy.
