It’s an election year!

Want to make sure Democrats win locally, win back congress in 2018, and win the presidency in 2020?

We need your help!

Of course, Greg Walden will be on the ballot. We’ll be ready. Meet the Democratic candidates here.

But Oregon is also voting for governor in 2018 and Bend’s Knute Buehler is running for the Republicans. We need your help to keep Kate Brown.

Deschutes County will see two of the most hotly contested races for the state legislature with no incumbents on the ballot in Bend or Redmond. Learn more about state candidates here.

There will be several more state and local races on the ballot that we want you to be ready for too!


How can you prepare now?

Learn about the candidates right here on our website – federal, state and local.

Join a working group and help us be ready to get well-qualified candidates where they belong.

Be a neighborhood leader – get to know the folks in your area and get out the vote.

Check for events on our calendar where you can be involved.

Study up with our resources and find ways to engage more effectively.

And always come to our monthly meetings and bring a friend! When you do come, ask about becoming a precinct committee person.


If you’re not sure where you can fit in, get in touch and we’d love to chat in person about the difference you can make!


A note on the primaries

The Deschutes County Democratic Party will not take a position or offer an endorsement of Democratic candidates in a competitive primary election race until after the primary has taken place (May 15, 2018).

Until then, the Party will support all Democratic candidates equally. We will make an attempt to promote all candidates equally and share candidate’s announcements and events equally. However, candidates must make an effort to contact the Party when they have material that they wish to have published.

If it appears that more material is being published by one candidate than another, please understand that this simply reflects the effort of candidates in working with the Deschutes County Democratic Party in requesting publicity.

Since we have several excellent candidates in our area, we will limit each to one Facebook posting per week – with a special exception for time-sensitive announcements (allowing up to one additional post). On Twitter, we will retweet every tweet from a candidate’s official account unless it is specific to an area outside of Deschutes County (for example, promoting an event in La Grande). Please understand that not all tweets may be retweeted, our team may miss some given the immense firehose that is Twitter. As always, please get in touch if you feel we missed something!

Contact us now if you would like something published on behalf of your candidate!
