As we celebrate the 238th anniversary of our country’s independence Davis County Democrats are working hard to liberate our county from right-wing influence, and return to ethical, responsible, and rational representation of our citizens by Democrats elected to office.
We have many reasons to be optimistic this election year! We have terrific candidates running in every House District race, and in just about every other race in our county too! We’ve been registering new voters, and our party is growing by leaps and bounds! And this year our county will be sending out Mail-In ballots to every registered voter which substantially increases voter participation and that benefits Democrats most! But we don’t win on optimism alone. We need you!
Volunteer – Volunteer – Volunteer
Do you get the idea that we need your help? Davis County was once a deep blue county before Republicans seized control of just about every office in the county. If Democrats are ever going to win elections in our county again it will only be with your help! Our candidates need you to volunteer with their campaigns. We need people to help make phone calls and walk our neighborhoods. We need you help staff events like our booths at farmers markets and the county fair. It’s only when we work together that we’ll create the momentum needed to put Democrats into office!
Money – Money – Money
We also need your financial contributions. Republicans have seemingly endless piles of money, while we struggle with our meager few dollars to build our party and support our candidates. To make matters worse, the Koch Brothers and ALEC are pouring cash into Utah and into Davis County Republican coffers. We are good at stretching a buck, but that’s not good enough to compete against Republican money. We need to raise funds to win. Let’s set a record for raising money this July. Click on the Act Blue thermometer and make a donation now. It’s safe and secure and only takes a few moments. And please be generous!
Welcome Madam Secretary!
The Davis County Democratic Party is delighted to welcome Allison Hess as our new party secretary! In a unanimous vote Allison was elected secretary by our Central Committee on June 24th. Allison brings with her a strong work ethic, a dedication to our party, and the skills needed to effectively and efficiently serve on our party’s Executive Committee. And she’s darn nice too.
To Market, To Market…
Davis County Democrats will again staff a booth at this year’s Bountiful Farmers Market. This has been a great opportunity for our party to be more visible in our community, and provides us a chance to register new voters, pass out candidate information and yard signs, and to gather voter’s opinions on various issues. We still have a few volunteer shifts available. To sign up to help staff our booth, follow this link: Davis Dems at the Bountiful Farmers Market
Calling All Dems
With our county’s mail-in balloting this year, we have a real opportunity to elect Democrats this fall, but only if Democrats and Independents vote. We’ll be hosting two evenings of phone banking each month to educate voters about mail-in balloting and to let them know about our wonderful candidates. Please sign up for as many evenings as you’d like by clicking on this link: Davis Dems Phone Banking

LGBT Equality in Davis County
