The following is a listing of all the counties – boroughs [AK] and Parrishes [LA] – in the United States (NM ? SC) with the number of electoral precincts as on record last year and their populations as estimated in 2009 by the Census Bureau, arranged by state. The beginning of any project is knowledge, and while I may not be able to play as large a role as I should, this is my contribution to help things along.
Find your state, your county and get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman (Precinct Captain [ID], Precinct Delegate [MI], Precinct Executive [OH], Precinct Committee Officer [WA], etc.). How many of your Committeeman positions are occupied, how many are vacant? Do you have content-free “moderates” heading your party apparatus, representing you in Congress, at the State Capitol or the school board? What are you going to do about it?
- AL ? GA: AL | AK | AZ | AR | CA | CO | CT | DE | FL | GA
- HI ? MD: HI | ID | IL | IN | IA | KS | KY | LA | ME | MD

It’s a committment of only a few hours a month, a few minutes of your time online daily and meetings every few months. But it can make all the difference for your children and grandchildren, and a hundred years from now, long after you’re gone.
