About the Mecosta County Democratic Party

The Mecosta County Democratic Party is an organization made up of engaged citizens who stand up for Democratic values and ideals in Mecosta County, the State of Michigan, and the United States of America. We support Democratic candidates running for local, state, and national elected office. We work to hold all elected officials accountable to our democratic values. As a local organization made of volunteers, we strive to engage with our community and anyone who shares the goals and values of the Democratic Party.
