RAPID: Regions and Precincts in Development

Our regions reached out to many voters this campaign season, and also supported our candidates directly by distributing literature, yard signs, and hosting fundraisers. Regional meetings are an important way to get things done and connect with nearby Democrats. Get more info about the regions here. You can contact the committee by email.

Parker Scholarship

Since the 1980s, the Democratic Party in Delaware County have administered a scholarship program in memory of Robert E. Parker, one-time owner of a men’s clothing store in downtown Delaware. Applicants are evaluated on the basis of academic standing, extracurricular activities, community service, political activity, career goals and involvement in activities supporting diversity, the economically disadvantaged, LGBTQ issues, and racial reconciliation. For more info, contact the committee.


The Communications committee manages this website, our Twitter account (@ohiodeladems), and the party’s email boxes. We contribute to the party’s public Facebook page, Democrats-only Facebook group, Executive Committee Facebook group, Instagram page, and mass emails. We work to keep our database of Democrats up to date. For more info, contact us.
