About the Cincinnati Democratic Committee

Democratic voters within a precinct are represented to the party by their Precinct Executive (PE). PEs are elected by the Democratic voters in the primary election in the even number years or are appointed by the Executive Committee. PE candidates must file a petition to place their name on the even year primary ballot or they can run as a write-in candidate for election in in his or her home precinct. After the first meeting of the Central Committee, a PE can be appointed by the Hamilton County Executive Committee to any precinct with an opening. Before being appointed, the individual’s voting history will be checked to make sure he or she did not vote in a Republican primary. Finally, the approval of the ward chair will be sought.  Some municipalities, like Cincinnati are organized into wards. The PEs within a ward democratically choose their Ward Chair to represent them to larger Democratic entities, such as the Cincinnati Democratic Committee and the Hamilton County Democratic Party Executive Committee.

In Cincinnati, every two years the Cincinnati precinct executives elect officers who oversee the Cincinnati Democratic Committee (CDC). This is another layer of leadership charged with organizing the Cincinnati wards to execute the official duties of , and to report back to the CDC. The CDC acts as the endorsing organization for candidates and issues that fall specifically within Cincinnati. During the odd year elections the CDC is busy interviewing, nominating and endorsing candidates for city council, and Cincinnati School Board, and organizing precinct execs to work on those campaigns. During the even year elections the CDC is recruiting activists for the county, state and national races.
