The Collier County Democratic Executive Committee (also known as the Collier County Democratic Party) is the official arm of the Florida Democratic Party. Democratic Executive Committees all across Florida are precinct-based organizations governed by Florida Statute 106, with membership in each county recorded by the Supervisor of Elections. The Collier County Democratic Executive Committee (CCDEC) is the official, local county arm of the Florida Democratic Party. The CCDEC has oversight over all Democratic Party activities within Collier County.
The CCDEC is primarily composed of Precinct Committeewomen and Committeemen, elected to represent their precincts for the Democratic Party in Collier County. These women and men are elected to 4-year terms by residents in their precincts at scheduled county elections and become members of the CCDEC. Each precinct may have one man and one woman or, if there are more than 1,000 registered voters in a precinct, it may have two men and two women. In the years of presidential races, these positions are included on the ballot. Positions not filled in these general elections may be filled by majority vote of current DEC members at official meetings.
Currently, we have one chartered Club – the Collier County Democratic Club (CCDC). We also work closely with the Democratic Women’s Club of Collier County (DWC Collier) to provide a forum for discussion of public matters, to support qualified candidates for public office and to encourage qualified Democratic women to seek elected office.
