Democratic Party County Committees

The NJ Statute Title 19 states all the regulation pertaining to the political parties structure and processes in NJ.

The Party Committees play an important role on organizing political activities from local to national level.
The committees play also an important role with regard of how much the party is open, transparent and fair to everyone.
We believe that all this information should be public and publicized to encourage a larger number of residents to interact with the party in a mutually beneficial relationship.

The State Committee (NJDSC) is the top level NJ Committee, its 113 members are elected by voters in the same ballot of the Governor election every 4 years. The number of these members is proportional to the population of each county. Here you can see the State Committee ByLaws.

The County Committees (made up of the members of the county Municipal Committees) decide (in a more or less democratic way, depending on the bylaws and other rules) which candidates to support. In NJ this is a deal-breaker business because most NJ counties use the “party line” for the primary elections which gives pretty much certainty who will win the primary.
While a county committee doesn’t have a large influence on a Presidential primary campaign, it has a huge impact on Congress and all down ballot races.

So, it is very important that residents know their committee (from a light survey, 50% of engaged citizens don’t know much about the committee), only participating on committee discussion registered voters can have more influence on which candidate to support as well as on openness and fairness.

On this page you can find the list of Democratic party county committees such as the term length, the last and next election, the number of seats, the chair, contact information and bylaws.

Clicking on the number of seats will display the list of committee members by their municipality, ward and precinct.
