On March 14, Democrats across the county will converge in libraries, schools, and community centers to reconnect, reorganize, and select new precinct leaders.
Precincts are the smallest geographic political unit. Each one represents a group of about 2,000 residents and neighbors. There are 151 of them in Greenville County – the largest of all of the state’s counties. Learn more on the GCDP website.
Every two years, Republicans (in the odd years) and Democrats (in the even years) elect grassroots leaders who will organize, educate, activate, and engage voters in their local communities.
In 2018, the GCDP began to build a stronger, more robust precinct system. Today, we have more precincts with active leadership than ever before. We have created “precinct clusters” to provide more collaboration and sharing of information and efforts in geographically aligned areas. Precinct volunteers have been knocking on doors and calling voters in their community to support candidates, to ensure Democrats in their communities are registered to vote, and to increase awareness of the Party’s objectives.
Our success in these efforts rests heavily on these precinct volunteers and leaders.
If you want to make a difference in elections and help elect Democrats who will stand for strong communities, accessible healthcare, a sustainable environment, thriving middle class, and across-the-board equality, then consider getting involved with your precinct now.
Start by planning to attend your precinct reorganization meeting on March 14 from 10 AM to 12 PM. Locations will be announced soon, so stay connected with the GCDP on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our website.
