VOTING MEMBERSHIP is open to all registered Democrats in Broward County and confers the right to vote for the organization’s officers, bylaws amendments, and other matters put to the general membership for vote. This carries with it an obligation to attend those meetings, especially those when votes will be taken --- as the lack of a quorum could hamper the business of the organization. If you are not able to attend monthly meetings on a regular basis, please consider opting for “Associate Membership”.
ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP is open to (a) other Democrats from outside Broward County; (b) Democrats who do not anticipate attending meetings on a regular basis; (c) individuals who reside in Broward County for all or part of the year and whoare not eligible to register to vote; and (d) persons registered with no party affiliation who wish to identify with the Democratic Party. Associate members may participate in activities, serve on committees, and speak at meetings, but may not make motions, vote, or hold office.
HOUSEHOLD MEMBERSHIP is available for two persons at the same address. The total cost of membership is reduced, as only one newsletter is mailed.
COMMITTEE PARTICIPATION is encouraged for everyone, but is not required. Serving on committees allows members and associates to have direct, hands-on experience in influencing local and state affairs and furthering the goals of the organization.
