It’s time to elect our state committee representatives! Members of the state committee represent the interests of the Fulton County Democratic Party Committee to the Democratic Party of Georgia. State committee members are like the Post Seat Holders (voting members) of the state party. This is a great opportunity to influence the state and national party from the local level! Committee members serve four-year terms and have several responsibilities:
- Attend the state committee meetings, where DPG business is addressed and voted on. They occur at least once annually.
- Vote on the DPG executive committee and Congressional District Chairs (state party leadership)
- Be an active members of our voter and public outreach activities–get more people as involved as you are!
To be a member of the state committee, you must be a resident and registered voter in Fulton County. There are 22 seats available across the entire county, and those positions will be voted on by post seat holders (listed here). Each Fulton County Commission District may have at maximum four (4) state committee members elected from it. Candidates may also give a short speech of approximately one minute before the entire county committee.
If you would like to run for one of the state committee seats you must show up on February 21 at the FCDP regular business meeting at 7:00 pm in the IBEW Auditorium at 501 Pulliam Street, SW, Atlanta 30312.
