About 206 Dems
We're doing something!
Most voters are not part of any group that encourages and intensifies their activities. The Precinct 206 Democrats aim to be just such a group. By reaching out to contact and energize all the Democratic voters in our precinct, the Precinct 206 Democrats seek to maximize Democratic involvement in local, state, and federal elections.
We believe deeply in the principle of precinct organizing and are convinced that this model can rejuvenate Democratic politics across the state.
What can you do now to make tomorrow better?
