Conservative Principles

Deschutes Republicans is an active organization working to:


  • Promote Republican ideals and principles

  • Register Republican voters

  • Educate Republicans on the importance of voting

  • Recruit and retain Precinct Committee Persons (PCP’s)

  • Organize a “Get-Out-The-Vote” program

  • Elect Republican candidates to office


The Deschutes Republicans Central Committee is the official state Republican group in Deschutes County. It has no paid employees (all volunteers). The committee performs duties prescribed by law and does all things necessary to carry on a full-time, aggressive party program.

Deschutes Republicans are assigned 500+ Precinct Committee Person positions, who do the business of the party in the county. I want to find out more about being a PCP!

Meetings are held monthly (or bi-monthly in non-general election years) on the 3rd Tuesday at 5:30-6:00 pm at various locations. View the Upcoming Events page for details. The dates for 2020 are now posted on the "Upcoming Events" calendar page.
