Want to help get Democrats elected and help advance the Democratic agenda? Here are some ways to get involved.

  • Learn about how to take action. This New York Times article “How to Participate in Politics” is a great introduction to ways you can make a difference.
  • Attend a LD10 Democrats monthly meeting. Our meetings are an opportunity to meet candidates and elected officials and to get involved in local Democratic politics.
  • Become a Democratic Precinct Committeeperson (PC). Long term, the most significant way you can get involved with the Democratic Party is by becoming a PC. PCs are responsible for organizing their neighborhood, making sure we have great voter engagement and turnout in every block. To become a PC either contact us by email at ld10dems@gmail.com or come to an LD10 Democrats monthly meeting (see above) and ask for the form.
