SIGN UP TO BECOME A COMMITTEEMAN
“If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.” - Numbers 30:2
Becoming a Committeeman requires that you will take NLA’s Civics and Government by Consent Courses. These courses will prepare and qualify you for these positions.
COMMITTEEMAN - is a non-paid elected position that will require about 40 hours of your time a year around election time, in the evening and are present on Election Day during the counting of the votes. Committeemen are the People who choose “whose on the primary ballot for election.” They also witness the counting of the votes and have the power to recall. Nomination and election is quite simple. Nomination for “Committeeman” is by petition that requires signatures from 5% of Republican or Democratic Party members within the election district you are running. Rarely are there more than 400 party members within any election district. This usually requires about 5-20 signatures from party members in your election district. You may run in any election district within the town or city you live in. Election of the Committeemen is at the primaries and if there are no challengers you will be deemed elected at the primary. In the very rare case where there are challengers your name will appear on the ballot at the primary election.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no conflict of interest in holding both the Elected Committeeman position, and the employed Administrator position.
We will be holding posting videos to assist People in filing a designating petition to become a Committeeman for your election district. It is important that all that are running for Committeeman take both our “Government by Consent Course” and “Civics Course.”
