Welcome to the website of the Douglas County Democratic Party!

The State of Kansas was founded on the principle of freedom from slavery and oppression and today is still often referred to as “The Free State”. During the era known as “Bleeding Kansas”, Lawrence was at the heart of the anti-slavery movement and twice pro-slavery raiders burned the town to the ground.

More than 150 years later, Democrats in Douglas County remain committed to progressive principles.

The  mission of the Douglas County Democrats is to develop and promote government policies and leadership that improve the quality of life for all people and increases participation in the democratic process.

We encourage you to explore our site, take advantage of the many resources provided, and most importantly get involved in electing more Democrats in Douglas County, the State of Kansas, and the United States at large!
