Do I need to be a registered Democrat?

No. Unaffiliated voters are welcome, but only registered Democrats can vote to elect officers or serve as an officer.

Invite a Friend

Know a Democrat in your neighborhood? Have an Unaffiliated friend who votes Democratic and wants to get more involved? Invite them to the meeting so they can learn how our local party works and meet more like-minded folks.

What’s this about resolutions?

Have an issue you want the county to look into? Want to see a change in the County or State Party? You can write a resolution and bring it to your precinct meeting. If your precinct passes it, your resolution will be considered at the County Convention on April 10.

Resolutions must be presented in writing at the precinct meeting and passed by a majority vote to be moved forward to the County Convention. 

How do I go about writing a resolution?
