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, asks 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

The state of New York has a proud legacy as the progressive capital of the nation, and that is more important today than ever before.
As New Yorkers, we have fundamentally different philosophies than what Donald Trump laid out in his campaign.
So let me be absolutely clear: If anyone feels that they are under attack, I want them to know that the state of New York – the state that has the Statue of Liberty in its harbor – is their refuge.
Whether you are gay or straight, Muslim or Christian, rich or poor, black or white or brown, we respect all people in the state of New York.
It’s the very core of what we believe and who we are. But it’s not just what we say, we passed laws that reflect it, and we will continue to do so, no matter what happens nationally. We won’t allow a federal government that attacks immigrants to do so in our state.
We are a state of immigrants.
We are the state that raised the minimum wage to $15.
We are the state that passed Paid Family Leave.
We are the state that passed marriage equality.
We are New York, and we will stand up for you. And on that, I will never compromise.
Count on it.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
