DCC Voting Members

The Lake County Democratic Party (Lake County Democratic Central Committee / LCDCC) is the official governing body of the Democratic Party in the County of Lake.

Each Supervisorial district in the County is represented on the Committee by elected or appointed Democrats residing in those districts.

LCDCC works in cooperation with the State and National Democratic Committees. LCDCC represents over 15,000 registered Democrats in Lake County. LCDCC conducts Democratic Party campaigns in Lake County under the general direction of the Democratic State Central Committee. It is responsible for building the Party organization at the district, regional, and county levels; registering Democratic voters; and encouraging Election Day turn out among Democratic voters. The essence of Lake County Democratic Party’s mission is to encourage the fullest possible participation of all Democratic voters and to disseminate the Democratic message, platform and philosophy.

LCDCC is responsible to officially charter Democratic clubs and organizations in Lake County. A major source of the local party’s grassroots organizing is through the encouragement and facilitation of Democratic clubs and organizations.
There are two chartered Democratic clubs in Lake County, the Lake County Democratic Club and the Lake County Stonewall Democratic Club. LCDCC develops official Party policies and positions and communicates them to the public and to all officeholders.

LCDCC provides a grassroots forum for the study and discussion of public policy issues and their impact at the local level. The Lake County Democratic Party interviews, develops and endorses Democratic candidates for public office.

Endorsements issued by the LCDCC in local, municipal and county races become the official endorsements of the California Democratic Party.
