Throughout the year, the Douglas County Democratic Party works hard to register Democrats throughout the county. You can resister on-line to vote, and you can confirm your voter registration status. http://sos.oregon.gov/voting/Pages/voteinor.aspx
Our grassroots volunteers and activists reach out to voters, providing information on endorsed candidates and motivating Democratic supporters to vote.
The Douglas County Democratic Party makes endorsements for each election to inform Democratic voters about the candidates and ballot measures we consider most worthy of support. In 2014:
Measure 86 - support of education investment bonding: SUPPORT
Measure 87 - allow state judges to work at colleges and serve in the National Guard: SUPPORT
Measure 88 - Driver cards for all Oregon residents: SUPPORT
Measure 89 - Equal Rights Amendment: SUPPORT
Measure 90 - Top-Two Primary: OPPOSE
Measure 91 - Marijuana Legalization: SUPPORT
Measure 92 - Genetically Modified Food Labeling: SUPPORT
In addition, the Party voted to endorse RITA HARRIS, Democratic candidate for the Douglas County Commission. The Party also supports KERRY ATHERTON, Democratic candidate for House District 2, as well as the re-election campaigns of Democratic U.S. Senator JEFF MERKLEY, Congressman PETER DeFAZIO, State Senator Floyd Prozanski, and Governor John Kitzhaber.
Fundraising & Infrastructure
The resources to accomplish our goals come from our local supporters in Douglas County. We raise funds to support our annual voter registration efforts and voter outreach efforts to ensure that we have the resources necessary to elect Democrats at the local, state and national level. It's up to you. It's time for action, so please join us in keeping Democrats in the White House, in Congress, and in Salem.
