Whether you are a longtime member, a new member, or just want to get more involved, the Democratic Executive Committee (DEC) is an organization that will allow you to play an important role in building the Democratic Party in Duval County.
The DEC helps people by electing Democrats!
The DEC is the governing body of the Democratic Party in Duval County. Its purpose is to build a strong Democratic Party in our County, for the purpose of electing Democratic candidates to offices at all levels. Here are some of the many activities the DEC engages in:
We provide a forum for the exchange of ideas among Democrats
We follow and support political issues of importance to Democrats
We recruit and train volunteers at the grassroots level
We register voters, to increase the number of Democrats in our County
We talk to voters on the phones and at the doors to persuade them to vote for Democratic candidates and support Democratic issues
We raise money for the Party and for Democratic candidates
We identify and support new leaders in the Democratic Party
And we supervise all Democratic Party matters throughout the County.
Who We Are
The Duval County Democratic Party is the official Democratic Executive Committee within Duval County responsible for handling Florida Democratic Party affairs within the county. We proudly represent over 250,000 registered Democrats within Duval County.
Who We Serve
Democrats are the party of inclusion. We know that diversity is not our problem—it is our promise. As Democrats, we respect differences of perspective and belief and pledge to work together to move this country forward, even when we disagree. We do not merely seek common ground—we strive to reach higher ground.
What We Do
The Duval County Democratic Party elects leaders who fight for equality, justice, and opportunity for all. We are working around the clock to build a strong Democratic Party capable of lifting Democrats all across the county to victory in 2020, and beyond. Each victory will take all of us – candidates, supporters, and the DNC – working together.
For more than 200 years, our party has led the fight for civil rights, health care, Social Security, workers’ rights, and women’s rights. We are the party of Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, FDR, and the countless everyday Americans who work each day to build a more perfect union. Take a look at some of our accomplishments, and you’ll see why we’re proud to be Democrats.
To ensure an effective government that supports projects, and provides an opportunity for the citizens of North Florida by advancing candidates, public officials, and policies that promote Democratic values.
An open, inclusive organization that Democrats are proud to support, that positively impacts our community and promotes opportunity for all by winning elections.
