The Democratic Party has always had an influential role in the history of California, right from the very first moment that this former Spanish territory became a part of the United States of America.
Many of the most influential leaders in the Democratic Party throughout history have relied closely on state representatives and other members of the California Democratic Party to win or clinch their elections, to secure votes to support democratic issues and efforts, and to help to promote social change and improvements throughout this great country of ours.
Social Security, Medicare, the civil liberties movements throughout the 1960s (including the Voting Rights Act of 1965), the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Affordable Care Act, and more efforts have all had a genesis here in the Democratic Party of California – and all of them have received overwhelming support from influential party members up and down the state.
Details about Democratic Party structure in California
Almost half of all registered voters in the state have registered as Democrats (44.49%), and more than 7.5 million of them are all working towards creating a happier, healthier, and more economically sound state – and country – by doing their part and more.
2900+ members of the Democratic Party of California all work together in the Democratic State Central Committee, one of the most influential governing bodies in the state legislature and one of the most influential governing bodies of ANY state legislature.
Local parties, Assembly District Election Meetings, and the actual elected officials all work together in support of one another to provide a unified Democratic front. Each and every one of these individuals of the Democratic State Central Committee worked tirelessly to improve conditions for those that are marginalized and too often forgotten about completely.
Things have never been better in California, thanks in large part to the Democratic Party.
State conventions held each year
Though springtime isn’t quite as markedly different in California as it is in, say, the Northeast (after the historically bitter winters), Californians recognize that springtime has finally arrived by all of the state conventions that are hosted by the Democratic State Selection Committee around this point in time.
In odd numbered years after presidential elections this committee forms to elect “Officers of the California Democratic Party”, each of which will receive a four year term in which they are able to help lead the Democratic Party in this state. Members of the “Executive Board” are also voted in, and all of these influential members work hand-in-hand with one another to create the platform – and unify all Democratic efforts – to better improve the state of California as well as influence federal politics as much as reasonably possible.
Of course, none of this is possible without citizens all over the great state of California showing up and voting for the representatives that they feel have their best interests at heart, and the Democratic Party of California (and the Democratic Party in general) would collapse without the support that they receive from regular everyday folks.
