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.

Special Election: August 8

Reject Republicans' Power Grab

The Republicans who control Ohio's legislature want to take away some of your power. On May 10, they approved an amendment to the state constitution that requires citizen-initiated ballot measures to get 60% of the vote. Legislature-initiated ballot measures would still pass with 50%. Why are they doing this? Largely, because they're against reproductive freedom, and they know that abortion access is popular with Ohioans. They are pushing this rule change in a desperate attempt to take away our freedom. Don't let them get away with it. The rule change goes to the voters in a special election in August, when turnout is low and costs are high. We must defeat it. We have a plan, and you can be part of it. Join the Ohio Democratic Party this coming Monday, May 15 at 6:00pm for a virtual strategy session about our collaborative statewide plan to counteract the anti-voter amendment, and how you as a volunteer can get plugged in. They'll also discuss the tools, resources, and framework the ODP has constructed to successfully win this campaign.

Reproductive Freedom

You can help get the Reproductive Freedom amendment on the November ballot. The amendment empowers Ohioans to make reproductive healthcare decisions free from government interference, and aims to ensure that we have access to safe, legal, equitable, and comprehensive reproductive medical care including abortion.

More than 400,000 signatures will be needed to get the amendment on the ballot. Before collecting signatures, you need to complete a brief online training. Click the blue button for training, then click the orange button to sign up to help at a petition signing event.
