About Us

What is a ward organization?
The 15th Ward Democrats is the local unit of the Democratic Party. (There are also Democratic Party organizations on the city, state and national level.) We are a group of volunteers that works to educate voters in the 15th Ward about Democratic candidates and issues, and encourage voter participation. In Democratic Primary elections, we hold candidate forums and vote to endorse candidates.

Who can join?
Any Democratic voter in the 15th Ward is invited to join us. We appreciate new ideas and perspectives!

When are the meetings?
We meet on the fourth Thursday of most months.  Please see our website or our Facebook page for meeting announcements to get exact time and location, or reach out to us via email
