Who We Are

We are the local Democratic Party for Grant County Washington. Grant County covers Central Washington from Grand Coulee through Soap Lake, Quincy, Ephrata, George, Moses Lake, Warden, Royal City and Mattawa. We live in a rural county that has a robust mix of farming, agricultural processing, manufacturing and retail.

We are here to elect candidates who uphold our values of economic fairness, universal access to healthcare, environmental stewardship, quality education for everyone, competence in government, and the importance of immigrants to our economy and our national identity.

We do this by registering new voters, organizing Democrats in our county to get out the vote and by endorsing candidates and donating to their campaigns. Our focus is on local politics from your hospital district, to your school board, your city council, your county commissioners, your state legislators, our state elected officials, and to our members of congress. We provide information that you can’t find anywhere else about local elections and the candidates who are asking for your vote. We also provide a place where voters in Grant County can communicate and work together to make our communities better places to live.

It’s easy to become a member of the Grant County Democrats. You will receive regular information about local politics and you will be invited to attend our monthly meetings, currently held via Zoom. Your local government institutions have a huge impact on your daily life and holding our officials accountable for their decisions is one of the most important things we all can do. Please Join Us.

What We Stand For

Democrats believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.

We believe we are stronger when we have an economy that works for everyone—an economy that grows incomes for working people, creates good-paying jobs, and puts a middleclass life within reach for more Americans.

We believe that today’s extreme level of income and wealth inequality makes our economy weaker, our communities poorer, and our politics poisonous.

Democrats believe that climate change poses a real and urgent threat to our economy, our national security, and our children’s health and futures, and that Americans deserve the jobs and security that come from becoming the clean energy superpower of the 21st century.

We are proud of our heritage as a nation of immigrants. We know that today’s immigrants are tomorrow’s teachers, doctors, lawyers, government leaders, soldiers, entrepreneurs, activists, PTA members, and pillars of our communities.

Above all, Democrats are the party of inclusion. We know that diversity is not our problem—it is our promise. As Democrats, we respect differences of perspective and belief, and pledge to work together to move this country forward, even when we disagree. We do not merely seek common ground—we strive to reach higher ground.
