Your Collier County Democratic Party
The Collier County Democratic Executive Committee (CCDEC), 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 and county-based organizations with membership in each county recorded by the Supervisor of Elections. The Collier County Democratic Executive Committee is the official, local county arm of the Florida Democratic Party. The CCDEC has oversight over all Democratic Party activities within Collier County.
What We Stand For
The Collier County Democratic Party knows that as we strive for a more “perfect union”, we must work to eradicate the injustices in our society if this “perfect union” has any chance to be successful. “Liberty and Justice for ALL” – we recite those words at the end of our pledge and that is the promise of America. That promise encompasses equity and equality. We are working to elect people committed to upholding that promise for EVERY member of our community.
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 presidential election years, these positions are included on the ballot. Positions not filled in these general elections may be filled by the majority vote of current Democrat Executive Committee members at official meetings.
Become a Precinct Leader
A Precinct Committee Person is the direct link between the voters in his/her precinct and the local party. He/she develops a relationship with Democrats in his/her precinct by canvassing, phone banking, social events, or one on one encounters. The recommended steps to becoming a precinct leader include attending the Volunteer Orientation and attending a CCDEC meeting as a guest. During the Orientation, you will learn about the structure and functions of the CCDEC. Attending a CCDEC meeting will provide you with insight into the business operations of the CCDEC.
