Announcement - Precinct Chair Feature
An Enhanced Precinct Chair List Has Been Added
July 6, 2022 - As part of my continuing efforts to add more features to the Precinct Chair Portal and make it more useful to our Chairs, I have added several new features to the Precinct Chairs List that are available in the Precinct Chair Portal.
First, the page is now a version created for exclusive use in the Precinct Chair Portal. It is an expanded version of the public version of the list that you'll see in the primary navigation under the "Leadership" menu. By the way, both lists are now dynamic and will automatically update when the new "official" DCRP database of sitting chairs changes. When the database changes such as when the Precinct Chair Status of each precinct changes to "Filled," both lists will automatically update upon their next viewing. The list is current for all Precinct Chairs voted into office for the 2022-2024 term. Also, it is current for all appointed Chairs currently confirmed by the CEC. Further, Susan and I are endeavoring to update the master database as soon as new Precinct Chairs are confirmed by the CEC. Expect a significant change at the CEC meeting in July (in a couple of weeks) when we are likely to confirm approximately 50 new Chairs. I have all of the "Pendings" queued up and will change their status as soon as they are confirmed. Then, the list will continue to grow as we recruit and confirm new Chairs at each CEC meeting going forward.
Second, I have added the current count of the number of registered voters in each precinct. This data comes directly from the official DCED Voter File and is current as of June 30, 2022. This count will vary slightly (+/- 3-6%) from the GOP Data Center counts but my counts shown will be more timely and more accurate since I am drawing the data from the DCED Voter File of ~1.4-million Dallas County voter registration records. I will endeavor to update this list from time to time as I get a new list from my ongoing FOIA requests from DCED (I get a new file approximately every 60 days - more frequently as we get closer to the November election.) Unfortunately, DCED doesn't make this list available online and in real-time through an API so I have to submit a FOIA request for a new version of the file periodically and update my database in batches.
Third, I have added the "official" DCED Precinct Map for every Precinct in Dallas County as PDF files. These maps are shown in real-time and will change automatically every time they are updated at DCED's contractor, clarityelections.com (Scytl.) In the PDF toolbar at the top of each map, you can elect to print the map or download the map to your device.
I will add some more features to this list throughout the summer as time allows and as I expand my database. This will be an ongoing project for some time.

I have opened a thread in the Precinct Chair Forum for discussion on the enhanced list and to field any questions you might have. Please join the discussion.
Logging Into the Precinct Chair Portal
All Precinct Chairs have User Accounts already established that will allow you to log into the Precinct Chair Portal.
Log in to the portal using your registered e-mail address and your secret password as your login credentials. If you have forgotten your password, please click the "Password?" link in the lower right of the login menu and follow the resulting on-screen instructions. The system will reset your password instantly and immediately e-mail instructions for confirming and completing the reset. You should get the e-mail just as quickly as your e-mail service can post new incoming messages. Typically, you should receive it in less than a minute.
Please note that if your e-mail reader strips off our authentication token that is embedded in the e-mail confirmation that we send you (some e-mail readers/services will strip the token as a misguided effort cloaked as an e-mail "security" or "anti-tracking" measures), the lack of the token will prevent you from completing your reset automatically. If that happens, call Bill Anderton at (214) 684-5793 and he will perform a manual reset for you while you are on the phone.
If you have any login issues and need any other assistance, please call Bill Anderton at the phone number shown above. Call any time.
