Ways to Volunteer

Ravalli County Democrats are made up entirely of volunteers and there is always room for your voice, ideas, time, talent and resources! Below are just some of the ways that you can get involved locally and make a positive impact in your community.

Make an impact at the most local level possible and volunteer to serve as a precinct committee representative. There are many vacant precinct positions, so check out our precinct map (need a link to that map that Linda carries around) to see if you live in a precinct in need of a representative. Below is a list of vacancies. For each precinct, the Montana Democratic Party Rules state that there must be two representatives of different gender identities. In addition, precinct representatives must live within the boundaries of their precinct.

Precinct committee representatives typically serve a two-year term and are elected/appointed by the Central Committee. Once you are elected, you’ll have a vote on the Central Committee.

As a precinct representative, you’ll have the opportunity to organize your neighbors, get out the vote, promote your candidates, and build your community.  To learn more about these vital positions, contact us.

The Central Committee created various sub-committees to more effectively manage and implement our mission. The following sub-committees welcome new volunteers and input.  Contact us to learn more.

Communications Committee – Focusing on the messaging and communication avenues for all Ravalli County Democratic activity, this committee manages our online presence and develops effective communications that support our mission.

Fundraising Committee – This committee seeks to raise funds necessary to continue operations, outreach, communication, and events that build our community and elect Democrats to office.

Outreach Committee – Tasked with building our presence throughout the community, this committee plans and executes all our outreach activities, including [this needs to be replaced with content, like a book club, festivals, parades, etc).

Precinct Development – This committee provides opportunities to further develop precinct people and their communities.

Volunteer Committee – This committee works with volunteers to find the best fit for them based on their skills and areas of interest.

For 2021, we will be evaluating these sub-committees. We may add more, based on current needs, so stay tuned. Or, better yet, subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed.

We welcome everyone to share their ideas on what we can do to continue to build our community, engage Ravalli County residents in Democratic values, and support our neighbors across the state. 

If you have suggestions, share them!  Contact us and we’ll be in touch.

The easiest way to stay connected to opportunities to engage and be a part of the conversation is to subscribe to our newsletter. We send, at most, two emails a month, but usually, it’s only one. We  never give out your information and you can easily unsubscribe at any time.
