The Dallas County Democratic Party

The Dallas County Democratic Party is on the front lines of the fight to save our democracy in a state led by extremists desperate to hold on to political power, afraid of the people, and suppressing votes instead of delivering basic resources like electricity.

Our diverse county serves 2.6 million people across 900 square miles. We work each day to grow our majority in Dallas County, and turn Texas blue. We will register Democratic voters, and turn out each voter in every neighborhood with our broad coalition of elected officials, Precinct Chairs, clubs, and activists from every part of the county.

Dallas County Democrats are an inclusive, people-powered movement that believes in equal opportunity, fairness, freedom, family, community, and a responsibility to ourselves and each other.
