House District Committees

The DeKalb County Democratic Party organizes itself around statehouse legislative districts.  Each House District fully within the County has six Post Holders who are elected  to four year terms on the Primary Election ballot  by  fellow Democrats with half being elected every two years. Districts which are shared with other counties have a proportioned number of Post Holders. The District Committee elects a Chair and the Chairs serves on the Party’s Steering Committee. The committee is empowered to fill vacancies and appoint additional non-voting members called “alternates”.

The District Committees purpose is to support their constituency before the  County Committee and to be the Democratic “eyes and ears”  to the State Representative regardless of the legislator’s  political affiliation. The relationship with the legislator is informal, but also vital to letting our voice be heard. In addition to being the Democratic voice in the House District, the committee is charged with organizing the District’s Democrats into a powerful political organization on Election Day and year round.
