What should I be doing with my political sections. It seems they don't help during the Pacification Phase. Can they run around and control empty capitals?

What did I miss? How do they not help during Pacification? Don't they still count as a unit?

Without hitting the book again, IIRC they may control a capital...there just hopeless at holding it all by their lonesome.

As far as I can remember a Political section counts the same as a military unit for Pacification.

Aside from Pacification, Political Sections also have ZOC. If nothing else, stand next to a road. Better is next to a road adjacent to another VC Unit.

Totally my mistake. Maybe I was drinking too much wine. It says DO have ZOC and DO count for pacification. Glad we cleared that up.

I assume you can use them to tag unoccupied capitals as well?

I saw DO NOT.
