Our Local Democratic Party Needs You

The fall 2016 election may be over, but the work of your local Democratic Party continues. And to enable us to have more races go our way, we will need the help of more people like you!

Your Orleans County Democratic Committee performs a number of tasks to help voters have a choice come election day. We help gather petition signatures for candidates who wish to run for office. We hold events to both share information and to fundraise, enabling us to support campaigns. We help to register new voters. We have a presence at community events. We buy yard signs for candidates, ask our neighbors if they want one, and take signs down after the election. We work elections to help out voters on election day. A lot of this work isn’t hard, but we can always use more people to help out. Whether you have a few hours a month to spare or just a few hours a year – you can make a big difference.

Though we can use the help of everyone in Orleans County, we have fewer members from towns on the west and east sides of the county. This past election has shown that we can’t afford to let our presence be weak in any rural area. So, if you would like to support your local Democratic Party please consider contacting us at info@orleansdemocrats.com to get involved. You can also contact anyone on the Committees or Officers pages to find out more. We are stronger together!

Feel free to also send us an email even if you would just like to be added to our mailing list for upcoming events.
