Get Involved

Political parties in the United States are formed on the State level with National level conventions, ideals and communication. The Pirate Party is no different, and we greatly encourage you to join your state party by registering as a Pirate voter. You can do this by obtaining a Voter Registration form and selecting Pirate (in states where we are recognized) or by selecting “other” and writing in “Pirate.”

Please note that there is no membership on the National level, however anyone who identifies as a Pirate is welcome to join the discussions and meetings of the PNC.


State Parties

There are established state parties in New York, Massachusetts, California, Florida, Georgia, Washington, Oregon and Wisconsin. Other state parties are forming across the nation. Getting a party started or helping to grow your own local chapter is very important to encouraging the success of the Pirate Party.


Right now, there are two major committees: the content committee and the press committee. There is a need for more committees to form though. For the Pirate Party to function there are many  jobs that need to be formed and various aspects of the National Operation can always be improved. If you wish to form a committee, be sure to read the bylaws and follow instructions.

Content Committee

The major focus of this committee are publishing news to the website and developing policy. This committee meets on the forum in General Discussion > Content Committee.

Press Committee

This committee will engage in the development in writing press releases, help manage the social media presence of the United States Pirate Party, and handle other public relations matters. Meetings to be announced.
