What Is A Committeeperson?
The 8th Ward is divided into thirty divisions. Each division has two volunteer representatives, known as committeepersons. Your committeepersons are your point of contact at the grassroots level with the Democratic Party in Philadelphia.
Committeepeople also act as the liaisons between their neighbors and government officials. Although their core job is getting out the vote on election day, they can be actively in touch with their neighbors all year long.
Don’t know what ward you live in?
Go to openmaps.phila.gov – click the option, “Political Ward Divisions” and type in your address. Click on the map, and it should tell you your ward and division (08XX). Alternatively, you can use the PA Department of State’s Polling Place Search to look up your address.
