A Precinct means a district within a county established by the board of elections of such county within which all qualified electors having a voting residence therein may vote at the same polling location.

What is a Precinct Delegate?

Precinct Delegates are closer to their community than any other elected official and are generally the most important.  The number of delegates are allotted based on previous election history and by the Chair of the county party in each county in the state.  Precinct Delegates, when vetting and voting, will be doing so based on the constituents within their precinct.
