The Blair County Republican Committee is an
all-volunteer, elected grassroots organization. Our

years. Two seats are available in each of the 95
​precincts in Blair County.

We currently have 5 standing committees:

We are always looking for more volunteers!
Members of the community are eligible to serve on these committees and contribute to our grassroots team. We are always looking for people to help us with direct voter outreach, as well! Please contact us for more information.
