Membership Duties

"It shall be the duty of every local Committee, as well as each officer and member thereof, to seek the registration of voters, to perfect the Democratic organization within the county or city, and to do all within their power to aid in the victory of the Democratic Party's nominees in all elections, except as otherwise provided in Section 10.9.” (Section 8.8 of the Virginia Democratic Party's Party Plan).

“No Democratic Committee member or officer of any Democratic Committee shall publicly support, endorse or assist any candidate opposed to a Democratic nominee. In the event any Democratic committee member or officer of any Democratic Committee shall undertake such public activity, the appropriate Democratic committee shall remove said person from office. Such action shall not be taken without at least ten (10) days written notice to the accused member and an opportunity for him or her to refute such charges. In the event that no action is taken against such a person, the district committee shall initiate the necessary action. The Steering Committee may take further action within thirty (30) days after the receipt of a written complaint by any member of the Democratic Party in relation to such matters.” (Section 10.8 of the Party Plan).

Membership carries an annual fee of $25. You can pay online, or you can pay by check to "WCDC, PO Box 1332, Abingdon, VA 24212." The fee is waived for students.
