Elect Democrats!

The Democratic Party of Delaware County, Ohio has a mission: get local Democrats elected. We do this by energizing local Democrats, helping to identify, encourage and support local Democratic candidates, and challenging the county’s long-standing single-party rule at every opportunity. Naturally, we also do whatever we can to support state- and national-level Democratic candidates.

The August 2 General Assembly Primary

Ohio’s first primary was held on May 3.
