“The Democratic Party of Virginia exists to facilitate and encourage the full participation of all Virginians in choosing their elected officials and controlling their political destiny. It is dedicated to the preservation  of all the rights enumerated in Article One of the Constitution of Virginia.”

From the DPVA Plan 

As part of the state Democratic Party, the Staunton Democratic Party (SDC) observes elections and participates in recounts, sponsors the Young Democrats, encourages voter registration, and coordinates with other Democratic committees and candidates. Our key objective is to recruit and nominate highly qualified candidates for elected and appointed offices.


The SDC is more than a social organization. We offer a way to improve our community by responding to the concerns of those who believe in or benefit from the principles of a democratic society. SDC work centers around three, interrelated objectives:

Political campaigns – Campaigns require us to mobilize supporters and resources for local, state, and national candidates. We work to identify and encourage strong Democratic candidates to run in this district and surround districts.

Voter outreach – Throughout each election year we seek to communicate with citizens who are undecided or apathetic but who agree with and benefit from Democratic principles, e.g., equal justice and equal economic opportunities.

Administration – Effective campaign support and voter outreach require an organization. The SDC maintains an organizational headquarters at 2507 North Augusta Street in Staunton. Our members volunteer to provide a Democratic presence at major civic events.

If you support government that serves the public interest by ensuring that each person is treated equally under the law, that no person is abandoned to ignorance, starvation, homelessness, or health catastrophe, that each citizen serves as a conscientious member of our democracy, and that our nation should engage the world as a strong, reliable ally with like-thinking nations – as a beacon of hope , and ardent defender of human rights – then we invite you to join the Democratic Party of the United States of America, and as a registered voter in Staunton, Virginia, to serve on our committee.

Remember, government begins with the local party committees. If we don’t stay informed, vote, and serve our electoral process – to do the work of citizenship, we will fail to get a high quality government that delivers the great and beautiful promise of America.
