Who We Are

The Charlotte County Democratic Party is made up of volunteers from our community who work tirelessly to help their neighbors.  We value the dignity of work, service, and humanity.

We have some hard work ahead of us as a county, state, and nation. We know that America can achieve greatness again, but we will never get there if we embrace hatred and ignore scientific facts.

  Together we will prevail as the United States of America; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Democrats across the state strive to ensure all Floridians have a fair and equal chance at a good life, regardless of their background, where they came from, what they’re worth, their religion, their ethnicity, their skin color, or who they love.

Several organizations work together to support and address the goals of the Democratic Party in Charlotte County. We invite you to join one or more of our groups and help us expand the Democratic Party presence in Charlotte County.

Charlotte County Democratic Executive Committee

The DEC is composed primarily of elected Charlotte County Precinct Captains. The objectives of the DEC are to assist Democratic candidates, register Democrats to vote, and get out the Democratic vote during elections. Activities include door-to-door canvassing and literature drops, phone banks, mailings, and voter registration. The DEC also hosts speakers on topics of interest to its members. Follow the DEC on Facebook!

There are 67 precincts in Charlotte County: please consider becoming a Precinct Captain. We always have a need for precinct captains.
