We encourage Jefferson County residents to become members of the Jefferson County Democrats!
Many of our members enjoy taking part in the campaigns organized by candidates and proponents of ballot measures. When JCD members endorse candidates and measures, we work together to support them. When JCD members adopt resolutions, we call on elected officials and organizations to consider our viewpoint on an issue and to act in specific ways.
- In August of even-numbered years, voters choose our precinct committee officers (PCOs) during the primary election.
- In December of even-numbered years, we hold our Jefferson County Democrats reorganization meeting, and the PCOs elect a chair, a vice-chair, a state Committee man, and a state Committee woman.
- JCD members elect officers of the Executive Board.
- The JCD chair appoints committee heads to serve on the Executive Board.
The elected PCOs also participate in the reorganization of the 24th Legislative District Democrats. The state committee women and men elected by Jefferson County Democrats and 24th LD Democrats serve on the Central Committee of the Washington State Democrats and elect its officers.
In presidential election years, the Jefferson County and/or 24th Legislative District parties conduct conventions for the Washington State Democrats to select delegates to the state convention.
