Our mission is to aid in the election of Democratic candidates for public office, and to assist the Democratic County, State, and National Committees.
We meet monthly, typically the Monday before the regular scheduled monthly Town of Jay council meeting. We meet at the AuSable Forks library at 6:00pm.
The Jay Democratic Committee forms a part of the Essex County Democratic Committee. We are allocated four voting delegates to the Essex County Democratic Committee. The ECDC is charged with the government and administration of the affairs of the Democratic Party within the County. The County Committee decides all questions relating to political policy or party government and management within Essex County or any part thereof.
JDC Members are required to be registered voters enrolled as Democrats who reside within the Town of Jay. To become a member, an individual must attend a meeting, request membership, agree to be bound by the by-laws. New members are eligible to vote at their second meeting of attendance.
Any enrolled Democrat, who is a non-member, regardless of residence, shall be allowed to attend Jay Democratic Committee meetings as a guest.
