Write a Letter to the Editor

Letters to the editor are great advocacy tools. Writing a letter to the editor (LTE) is an effective and easy way to reach a large audience with your message. Members of Congress keep a close eye on media coverage, including LTEs, in their local papers so they can keep an eye on issues of importance to their constituents.

LCDC Action Alerts

Are you passionate about standing up for fairness and justice?

Committee people are elected by Democrats in their local precinct to represent them on the County Committee. They inform their neighbors of election dates and polling places, provide information about candidates and issues on the ballot, represent the Democratic Party and endorsed candidates at their polls on election days, and organize their precincts to get out the vote.

Our by-laws allow two committee people per voting precinct, though some precincts have less than two committee people. The LCDC Chair may appoint residents to fill vacancies through the next committee person election. These appointed committee people have the same rights and responsibilities of elected committee people.

Does this sound like something you’re interested in? Fill out this form to submit your inquiry to the LCDC Chair. If there is a vacancy in your precinct, the LCDC Chair or your District Leader will reach out to meet to discuss the role. If there are no vacancies in your precinct, we’ll still help you get involved in local campaigns!
