Precinct Organization

There are three critical ingredients to democratic renewal and progressive change in America: good public policy, grassroots organizing and electoral politics.

Precinct Organizing: The Life-Blood of the Montgomery County Democratic Party

Precinct officials are the volunteer neighborhood organizers of the Democratic Party. Precinct activities include maintaining a year-round grassroots presence in each precinct, registering and welcoming new voters, educating residents during the primary and the general elections, distributing Democratic Party material at each polling place, and assisting in the annual grassroots fundraising effort, the “Dollars Drive.”

Precinct officials also have a direct voice in the local and state Party through various means.
