Our Growth This Year
The Marion County Democratic Party has been working diligently since March 2020 to build an outstanding Coordinated Campaign Committee. We have recruited dedicated volunteers who assumed lead positions in data collection and technology, volunteer intake, virtual phone calls, texting, social media, voter registration, vote-by-mail enrollment, Hispanic outreach, and outreach to young Democrats. All together, we have over 300 active volunteers working with the Coordinated Campaign.
We have successfully increased Democratic voters’ enrollment in vote by mail by almost 9000 voters. As of October 14, over 50% of requested Democratic vote-by-mail ballots have been returned. Our volunteers are now focused on getting out the vote and are calling and texting Democrats who have not yet voted.
Early voting begins Monday, October 19. Marion County Democrats have 100 certified early voting poll watchers and will have at least that number of certified poll watchers for election day.
We are building a sustainable Democratic Party in Marion County and will only increase our effectiveness in future elections.
Chair, Marion County Democratic Party
