Local Democratic Clubs

The Democratic Central Committee of Marin urges you to visit a number of clubs (both chartered and non-charted) that discuss local issues and organize Democrats around specific issues. Depending on membership, chartered clubs are able to send specified numbers of voting members to the state Democratic party to pre-endorsement meetings.
Usually, membership is open to all registered Marin Democrats who support the principles of the Party. Below is a list of chartered clubs in Marin and their contact information.
