Take Action

Recruit

We all have a circle of influence including family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, members of organizations we belong to. Invite them to a social event like "Pints and Politics".


We are always recruiting new members to make a difference in 2020. 


Volunteer

We all have talents and skills that are useful to the Presque Isle Democratic Party. We will need volunteers to canvass neighborhoods, march in parades, sign up  for phone banks, send out post cards, or help to get out the vote. We need challengers to serve at every election in each precinct. If interested contact us at presqueislecountydemparty@gmail.com with "volunteer" in the subject line.

Voter Registration

  • Check to make sure that you are registered to vote with your current address.
  • Apply for an absentee ballot. Proposition 3, passed in 2018, allows all voters to receive a "no-reason" absentee ballot. 

Run for Office

Presque Isle County needs more Democrats in local offices such as precinct delegate, school board, and township boards. 


There is no longer an online directory of all of the local and county officials with details about their party affiliation and terms of office. 


The County Clerk's Office in Rogers City has published a 44 page directory that is available in the Court House. Or check with your local village, city, or township to find out which positions will be open and for which election. Members of our local party either have had special training or real-life experience with running for office. 


Attend Village, Township, City and County Meetings

Meetings of elected officials are open to the public. And there has to be a provision for public comment. The County Clerk's website has a listing of meetings of local government entities.
