State Democratic Party Membership is now
Shiawassee County Democratic Party Membership
Once you are a member of the Michigan Democratic Party, you are automatically a member of the Shiawassee County Democratic Party. However, the reverse is not true. You must be a member of the MDP to participate and vote in Shiawassee County Democratic Party meetings and our local conventions.
We no longer collect separate dues for the Shiawassee County Democratic Party. The MDP returns a portion of your dues to us to use for our local activities.
When you have joined the Michigan Democratic Party, they will mail you a credit card size plastic ID card. The card will have only your name, the MDP logo, and your membership ID number, in text and barcode. That card (More specifically that ID NUMBER) will be scanned at conventions and MDP Membership events, and you will be issued credentials for the convention or activity. The database knows whether you membership is current or not. Your membership is good for one year from the date you signed up. Please pay attention to the notice the MDP and the Shiawassee County Democratic Party will send you when your membership is due. Keep in mind, unless you are a precinct delegate, a Democratic Candidate in a recent election, or a currently elected Democratic office holder, you are required to be a member for 30 days prior to a convention in order to vote at that convention!
We urge you to join and maintain State Democratic Party membership, and we will remind you when your State Democratic Party membership expires so that you can renew within 30 days.
