JOIN THE COMMITTEE

The Lincoln County Democratic Committee meets monthly. It’s an opportunity to meet members, participate in discussion, hear from political candidates and other speakers with expertise, ideas and opinions about current issues. We also have a number of volunteer subcommittees that focus on various long-range projects.

VOLUNTEER

LCDC is a great resource to become better informed about local, state and national issues affecting all of us and to help work toward implementing progressive solutions. Are you ready to get more involved?

RUN FOR OFFICE OR HELP OTHERS GET ELECTED

One of the fundamental roles of the LCDC is to educate and support aspiring candidates or become one yourself. It is more important than ever that the voices of those with progressive values and ideas are heard and that fresh perspectives and strategies are brought to bear on the problems we face.
