About Our Party

  The Manatee County Democratic Party is an entirely volunteer organization working to promote Democratic issues at the local, state and federal level.

Work for a Candidate

 Contact a candidate to offer your  experience and skills -- to write, phone, research,

web design -- ask how to help.

Join a Club

 Manatee Democratic Clubs and Caucuses meet monthly and take on a wide range of initiatives, events and fundraisers.  Check meeting times and places in our Events Calendar, or find the group that interests you:


 Fundraising allows us to have a presence in Manatee and support our local candidates.  Help with established events or start your own.

Lucy Lapides, DEC Fundraising Chair


Traveling Dems

 Our on-the-road Democratic booth goes to fairs and community events to get out our message. Help set up the booth, meet people, register voters and enjoy the event.

Contact Randi Sathan, DEC Precinct Chair

Get really involved. Run for office.

Manatee County needs Democratic candidates at all levels of government.  

Local and down-ballot offices such as Board of County Comissioners, city councils 

and school board, or even soil and water conservation, matter to our communities.
