Support the FCDC

Because the Fayette County Democratic Committee is a volunteer organization, we rely on contributions from members like you to keep our operation running. Please consider the following options of support:



We have plenty of opportunities to donate your time. No matter if you’re a people person or an introvert, you have a place with your local Democrats.



It’s your right—make the most out of it. A vote in Fayette County is worth double a vote in Oklahoma or California, so use your vote wisely and vote Democrat down the ticket.



The FCDC is 100% volunteer-staffed. We rely on donations to pay our electric bill, so if you’ve got $10 to spare please consider sending it to your local party.
