What Does The Central Committee Do For Ravalli County?

The Central Committee Of Ravalli County is comprised of local citizens that volunteer their time and money in order to find good Republicans to represent the citizens living here in our beautiful valley. The goal is then to help get these good Republicans get elected to represent our citizens by way of  precinct captain seats and at the legislature level in Helena.

If you are already a member of the Central Committee, we thank you. If you are not currently a Central Committee member and would like to serve the party in this capacity, please contact us today.


The basic unit of our political system is the precinct. It is at the precinct level that elections are won or lost. The key person in the party organization representing the precinct is the Central Committee Member.
