Introduction

Feel things are on the wrong track and care about the direction of your community?  Are you tired of TV news making you angry but like to channel it in a positive way?

Looking ahead to November 2022, we have a great opportunity for Republicans to tap into the groundswell frustration of the radical left agenda.  Every election matters, but this will be a unique one with the wind at our back and Deschutes county is a key battleground for the whole state.  You can make a meaningful difference and we will respect your time finding the right volunteer role that fits your availability, interests, skills and passions.

The role of Deschutes Republicans is to provide strategic support and resources to help Republican candidates and conservative initiatives to increase their odds of winning and ensure the conservative viewpoint is present and compelling in our community.  

To accomplish this goal, we need volunteers like you to step up.   We have literally hundreds of volunteer role opportunities.  

YOUR NEXT STEP: Please take 2 minutes to fill out this Volunteer Interest Form. This helps us get to know you and how we can find the best volunteer role fit.  We will then have someone from our team follow-up to connect with you.  Due to the high demand of many people wanting to get involved, we are catching up on a big backlog so ask for your patience, but this is a top strategic priority.
