The California Democratic Party is governed by ordinary citizens who are, for the most part, elected members of Democratic Central Committees from their various counties. Candidates for County Central
Committee appear on the June primary ballot, and six members are elected from each Assembly District.
The responsibility of Central Committee members is attend a monthly meeting of the Committee and help advance the goals of the Democratic Party by doing voter registration, serving on subcommittees, doing outreach to organizations that share our values, and the like. Central Committee members are eligible to be elected as delegates to the California Democratic Party’s annual convention.
Your Party needs YOU. If you’re interested in running for the Orange County Democratic Central Committee, you must go to the county Registrar of Voters’ office and file nomination papers, with
signatures from 20 Democrats in your district, between now and March12. There’s no cost to run.
Members of other parties can run for their own Central Committees. Over at Red County, Chip Hanlon has written a post explaining the how and why for Republicans.
