What is central committee and why does it matter?
- Central committee members are immensely influential and are the real party establishment.
- They select the party leadership, approve the party bylaws, and vote to endorse the party’s candidates.
- In Ohio, generally, one person per precinct can serve on a party’s central committee.
- Central committee members are elected in the primary in ‘neighborhood’ elections that are very easy to enter and win.
- Due to lack of awareness, many central committee positions go unfilled or are elected unopposed.
- Serving on central committee requires an average time commitment of less than an hour or two per month.
