Why become a member?
The 21st Legislative District Democrats organization is member-driven. This means members, not officers or elected officials, have control over the future of our local party. By joining, you will have the ability to propose actions that the organization will take, participate in debate, and have a vote.
Which membership is right for me?
There are two types of membership available:
If you reside in the 21st Legislative District and are eligible to vote, you qualify to be a voting member! Voting members have a voice in all matters.
If you are not eligible to be a voting member, you may become an auxiliary member. Auxiliary members do not have voting rights, but they are permitted to speak during debates on motions to have their voice heard.
Why Membership Dues?
Our membership dues help fund the activities of the organization. They are used to pay for this website, fund events, print flyers, and a plethora of general expenses that are common to small political organizations. However, when it comes to donating to candidates or initiatives, the 21st has strict rules that make sure that the membership must specifically vote on each and every contribution.
In an effort to avoid placing an undue burden on our members, we have set our dues at a very low level, $25/year, which works out to just a little over $2/month. If you signup in the months of November or December, your membership dues will cover the following year as well. By relying on membership dues as our primary source of revenue, we can avoid spending our valuable time courting large donors and focus more on our grassroots efforts.
What if I can’t afford the membership dues?
With the historic income inequality in today’s economic climate, we understand that some may not be able to support our organization monetarily. For those in such a position, dues can be waived.
