The Primary Election will take place on August 7, 2018 and the General Election will take place on November 6, 2018.

Sign up for the newsletter and we will provide updates for important state and local meetings, events, calls-to-action, information about candidates and elections. You will also get a chance meet other like-minded people and see what they are doing to remain informed, engaged and sane. We can come together around our shared values.

We will collaborate with other local, state, and grassroots organizations to elect qualified and moral candidates to the various local, state and national offices.

Volunteers will make a huge impact on what we can achieve. We will hold voter registration events, campaign for candidates, fundraise for candidates, train candidates, canvas and make phone calls. We will attend other organizations’ meetings to continue fostering relationships and collaborating toward a shared vision.

Our page offers resources for voters to engage at the local, state and national levels of government and community. We appreciate your interest in the MCDP and would love to see you at the next meeting!

Our monthly meetings take place on the third Wednesday, 6:30pm, in the County Building, 220 W. Ellsworth.  We do not meet in August or in December.

There are lots of ways to get involved and make your voice heard. We’re always interested in gaining new members or finding a way to volunteer that’s right for you. Contact us and together we can make a difference.
