Contact Us

The Fayette County Democratic Committee is the primary point of contact between the local Democratic Electorate and the Democratic Party. Along with taking responsibility for supporting our candidates for local office, we pride ourselves on being reachable to our Party members. Have any questions at all?

About Us: The Fayette County Democratic Committee (FCDC) is a county political party of the Democratic Party of Georgia (DPG). Our voting body is comprised of 24 Democrats from each of the 4 County Commission Districts within Fayette County and 1 At-Large District. Voting members are elected by caucus during regular Fayette County Democratic Party business meetings in even numbered years, but anyone may apply to fill vacant seats any time.

We engage in Get-Out-The-Vote activities year in and year out, especially during election years. District by district, we find opportunities to increase Democratic performance and improve Democratic participation.  We work to support our Democratic elected officials during difficult legislative battles.

Above all, we stand for social and economic justice. It’s time for you to stand with us in this important work. To make a real difference, we need Democrats from all walks of life and every district in our county.

Committee Membership

All Democrats in Fayette County, GA are invited to participate in the activities and events of the Fayette Democrats. The best place to start is by attending a monthly meeting or by joining our party.

If you’d like to get involved in the business of the party–to become a voting member of the body–the process is a little more involved. Only members of the Fayette County Democratic Committee may vote at FCDC Business Meetings and in party elections conducted by the Fayette County Democratic Party (such as those for Officers and State Committee Members). Also, being elected as a County Committee member qualifies you to run for some of these elected positions.

There are 24 Committee Members: four elected from each County Commission District 1 through 4 and eight elected from County Commission District 5 (At-Large). Within each district, half of the Members are elected in Presidential election years and half are elected in Gubernatorial election years. Terms for the County Committee are for four years.

How Do I Run For An FCDC Committee Member Position?

  1. Fulfill the requirements. You must be registered to vote in, and a resident of, Fayette County.
  2. Find which County Commission District you live in. To find your Commission District, you can check your voter registration card, use the Commission District Map, or visit your Georgia My Voter Page.
  3. Announce your intention to run for a Committee Member position. To do so, complete a “Committee Member Affidavit,” available below, and email it to FCDC Chair Carolyn Fludd: chair@fayettedems.org.

Run for Executive Board

The FCDC is currently accepting nominations for its ’23-’24 Executive Board. We have five positions available to fulfil and encourage all Post Seat Holders interested in participating to do the following:

  1. Read through your preferred positions’ qualifications
  2. Make sure you are a current Post Seat Holder
  3. Fulfil our candidate checklist and submit your name/email address ASAP.

Flip Fayette Blue

Fayette County has grown so Democratic over the last 15 years that it now sits a coinflip. We have a chance to flip BLUE for the first time since the era of Dixiecrats, this time as a party working to protect the rights of everybody. There’s only one group left in local politics that governs in reality, and it’s not them.
