Your District

Making a difference, one vote at a time.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower democrats to take an active role in local, state and national elections, increase voter participation, and recruit and support great candidates that embrace Democratic values.

Our Platform

The 21st Legislative District Democrats support a progressive platform that puts people first, not corporations. Repealing Citizens United and fighting the influence of big money in politics must be a priority.
Healthcare is a fundamental human right. The pursuit of happiness can never be realized when the health of our citizens is dependent on a for-profit industry that places the health of its stock price over the health of its customers.
One of the greatest determiners of success in our country is the education afforded to our citizens. From underfunded public education to rising tuition rates, that saddle our young adults with crushing amounts of debt, the Aerican Dream is out of reach for many. This is an injustice that we must correct.
This represents a small subset of what we as Democrats stand for. To learn more and help both craft our platform and help see it become a reality, Join Us!
