Volunteers are the backbone of our Democracy. Virginia has elections every year and each year the Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) registers new voters, organizes more than 240 precincts, protects people’s Right to Vote, supplies campaigns with important resources, sponsors an internship program with dozens of young people, makes sure our voters know who is on the ballot, how they stand on the issues, where to vote, how to vote absentee, and we get our voters out to vote on Election Days.
FCDC also has a headquarters office in the middle of the County and your contributions pay for the rent, utilities and office supplies so we can help get Democrats elected. That’s how we win. That’s how we move Fairfax County forward and your contributions of time and money help make that happen. Please fill out our volunteer sign up form and we will make sure your time and effort are put to good use.
