Our Mission

The mission of the Charleston County Democratic Party is to educate and encourage participation in the political process by people of all backgrounds who support Democratic principles. Funds garnered from this participation will be used to help elect Democratic candidates and to support Democratic programs.

To achieve this mission, CCDP will:

  • Register voters, recruit and support candidates, and organize get‐out‐the‐vote strategies

  • Educate the community about Democratic ideals and the Democratic Party platform

  • Inform voters about political events and about issues such as education, the environment, transportation, health, development, and the economy

  • Support the organization and development of precinct teams and regional clubs as is outlined in the State Party Rules

Charleston Democrats typically meet on the third Thursday of every month at 6:30 PM at North Charleston City Hall. We also hold a variety of social gatherings and encourage people to volunteer with campaigns and get involved with local groups. All meetings will be posted on our Facebook page and announced in our email newsletter.


Volunteers are the core to Democrats winning!

Volunteers are needed to make phone calls and knock on doors throughout the year. If you are willing to help with this please sign up and we will get you working to elect Democrats!
