Delaware County Phone Bank

Every Tuesday evening we will be hosting a phonebank from 5-8pm. We will be calling fellow Democrats in Delaware County to inform them of upcoming events and volunteer opportunities in our community. If you can help please email Isaac at

Could You Represent Your Precinct?

We strive to have representation from each of the 151 precincts covered by the Delaware County Ohio Democrats.  Currently about one third of those precincts have committee representatives.  The only requirements for the positions are living in the precinct, attending a minimum or 3-4 of our monthly meetings in a year, and an interest in participating.

Congratulations to Delegates!

On 5 January,  the 12th Congressional District Caucuses were held at the Delaware Area Career Center, North. At stake were 4 seats to be a delegate to the Democratic National Convention. Two seats are designated for women and 2 for men. Both the Clinton caucus and the Sanders caucus were held at the same location but in separate rooms.

Our Growth

Friends, The Delaware County Democratic Party has over 38,000 democratic voters in it, and growing! This is a tremendous growth from as recent as the year 2000. Since the millennium, about one out of every two people you meet in the street was not here in the year 2000.

Democratic Voices

Finally! An issues based social media outlet for our Democratic Voices to be heard.  Read on (from them)...

Having returned from Arizona I'm often asked if I'm happy to be back in Ohio. The answer is an unequivocal yes, I'm home. After playing a supporting role in Sherrod Brown's reelection in 2012 my friend Jeff Rechenbach and I asked ourselves, how can we best contribute to strengthening and growing the Democratic party in Ohio. Our answer is Democratic Voices.

We are excited to share with you the friends and family launch of our online community, Democratic Voices. As you may know, we have been working toward this day for quite some time--- and we are now ready for you to join us.

Today, we would like you to be one of the first people to join our Democratic Voices community. You will be an integral part of shaping the future of our organization and our site.

At Democratic Voices we believe that today's public conversations are too often focused on political point-scoring which gets far more attention than problem-solving. People trying to do the right things for the right reasons get left out of the conversation. We created Democratic Voices to bring people back into the conversation. By sharing their stories with a broad audience, we hope to bring out humanity in politics.

Over the past year we travelled all over the state of Ohio capturing stories about people’s experiences and the values they hold, and turning those stories into original videos to be shared online. In addition to our own video production, we also collect other meaningful stories on the internet and share those with our Democratic Voices community. We invite you to take some time to check out our website and share these stories with your friends and family.

In the coming weeks we will be emailing you to get your feedback on our website, Twitter, Facebook, newsletter, and overall impression of our work. From your feedback, we will continue to develop content that is meaningful to you and your friends. We hope you are willing to engage in sharing positive and meaningful discourse to further promote our Democratic values. Thank you for supporting Democratic Voices as we enter into this very exciting new phase.
