Benefits Of Membership

  • Being part of a strong local Democratic Party that is ready to put Democrats in every elected office.

  • The ability to vote on party endorsements of candidates, issues, and resolutions. These are the decisions that direct our resources and energy toward supporting what’s most important to local Democrats.

  • The opportunity to help shape the future of the Whatcom Democrats through involvement participation on committees that make decisions about the direction and activities of the party.

  • You can be involved as much or as little as you like! Your support is appreciated and valued, no matter at what level.


Become a Precinct Committee Officer (PCO):

The PCO (Precinct Committee Officer) is the party’s representative in each neighborhood.  In addition to informing their neighbors about our endorsed candidates, PCOs have the responsibility of voting on our party Bylaws and electing officers to the party.  PCOs are elected every two years by voters in their precincts.

In precincts that don’t currently have an elected PCO, we are looking for people to serve as appointed PCOs, with similar responsibilities but limited voting rights for party issues. Step up to talk to voters in your precinct and work to get Democrats elected!
