All Democrats in Fayette County, GA are invited to participate in the activities and events of the Fayette Democrats. The best place to start is by attending a monthly meeting or by signing up. However, if you’d like to get involved in the business of the party, become a voting member of the body, the process is a little more involved. Only members of the Fayette County Democratic Committee may vote at the monthly FCDC Business Meetings and in party elections conducted by the Fayette County Democratic Party (such as those for Officers and State Committee Members). Also being elected as a County Committee member qualifies you to run for some of these elected positions. There are 24 Committee Members: four elected from each County Commission District 1 through 4 and eight elected from County Commission District 5 (At-Large). Within each district, half of the Members are elected in Presidential election years and half are elected in Gubernatorial election years. Terms for the County Committee are for four years. In 2016 all 24 Committee Members will be elected, half for 2 year terms and half for 4 year terms.
