Local Party Organization Matters
Whether you are focused on local, national, or international issues, electing the right leaders comes down to local campaign organizing. Whatcom County consistently has higher turnouts to Democratic Precinct Caucuses, higher levels of campaign volunteers, and higher voter turnout, than state averages, because Democrats in Whatcom County know how to make a difference. This is because the Whatcom Democrats keep them in touch and informed about elections, candidates, and volunteer opportunities.
The Whatcom Democrats, the official Democratic Party organization for Whatcom County, is governed by the Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) who are elected by Democratic voters in each of their precincts. In turn, the PCOs adopt bylaws and elect officers who manage the activities of the party. The Officers and appointed committee chairs make up the Executive Board. Our modest annual budget is supported completely by local memberships, donations, and fundraising events.
