Become a Post Seat Holder

Voting members of the DeKalb County Democratic Committee are called Post Seat Holders (PSHs). Becoming a voting member/PSH of the DeKalb Dems is a little more involved than just volunteering, but we will help you through it. 

 Holding a Post Seat empowers you to do the following:

  • Vote on important business administered at the monthly Business Meetings
  • Vote in party elections
  • Run for some party positions, including chairships
  • Serve as a member in a House District Committee, which organizes Democrats at the House District and precinct level in DeKalb County.

How do I apply for a Post Seat?

  • First, you must be registered to vote in and a resident of DeKalb County, Georgia.
  • Next, make sure you know which House District you live in. Go to My Voter Page on the Georgia Secretary of State’s website to find your House District. There are 6 post-seats for each House District. 
  • If there is a vacant seat in your district, you may apply to fill it by contacting your House District Chair, who will then submit this form on your behalf. Your House District Chair can then nominate you during any monthly business meeting, and the committee would then vote on it.
  • If there isn’t a vacant seat, post-seat holder elections are held for all House Districts every two years usually during a regular monthly business meeting, so you can run for a post-seat during those elections, which will be announced ahead of time in the monthly newsletter or on our social media.
