FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a Democrat?
A person is a Democrat when they are a member of a Democratic Party organization. There are local, state and national Democratic organizations. In Michigan State, voters do not have to identify a party in order to register to vote. Many people choose not to become members of a particular party organization but still consider themselves Democrats if they share our belief system.
What does it mean to be a Democrat?
Being a Democrat means caring about others and supporting Democratic values. Our platform supports equal access, social justice, and sustainability at every level, including protection of those less fortunate, stewardship of the environment, and family values.
Where do my donations go?
Every part of your dues go to getting Democrats elected. Your dues go to help support the local office. They help support local special events or even distribution of a newsletter. All of the work done in the name of the party is done by volunteers. During the campaign season, fundraisers are used to get more funds to further help support the campaigns of local, endorsed Democratic candidates.
What can I do to make a difference?
The single best thing you can do is get involved. There are many ways to help. We need day-to-day assistance, committee members, people who like to plan events, fund raise, talk to people, write letters and stories, help with campaigns, share their good ideas, serve as officers. For almost anything you can think of, we can use your help! Just call or email us and we’ll try to find the right fit for you.
