Who We Are 

The Democratic Party of Washington County is one of the most active and influential political committees in Arkansas. We work to elect and support democratic candidates as well as keep our community informed of important political issues and events.

We are fighting for a better, fairer, and brighter future for every American: rolling up our sleeves, empowering grassroots voters, and organizing everywhere to build back better.

Whether you're new to politics, want to find out more, or are a self-proclaimed political animal, we have a spot for you. Our Committee meets monthly on the Third Monday of every month at 6:00 pm.
