About Us

Mission Statement

  • To support and promote the growth and development of the Democratic Party and its principles.
  • To actively seek and support Democratic candidates for public office, including candidates for nonpartisan offices.
  • To inform voters of relevant issues and candidates’ positions on those issues.
  • To perform such election functions as required by law.
  • To raise funds for the above purposes.

Party Building

The Get Out the Vote/Party Building Committee meets once a month to work on content for the newsletter, the website, and to generate ideas for growing our membership and volunteer base.  We invite all who are interested to join our meetings or to share ideas with committee members. Like so many things, our activities have been limited due to the pandemic but we look forward to a time when we can begin to plan in person gatherings. Volunteers are critical to the success of the Lee County Democratic Party organization. We hope you will find an activity in the Party for your special skills and talents. 

Fundraising Committee

The Fundraising Committee plans and organizes all fundraising events. Funds are used to support the candidates, pay for an office during election seasons, and promote future fundraising efforts. The results of our efforts are especially rewarding when Democratic candidates and values are promoted throughout the county.

To help with fundraising, you can take part in a fundraising event, join the committee or donate!
