About Us

We are local residents working together to promote progressive values, advocate equality for all people, and create strong communities through service, education, and empowerment.

We are the Big Tent Party.  We encourage a broad spectrum of views among our members. We embrace our diversity--gender, age, occupation, social-economic status, sexual orientation, labor unions, and farm organizations. We believe (as a group) that we are not monolithic, and we do not take any vote for granted. We are focused on knowing our neighbors, and we believe SD47 plays a vital role in our community.

A Precinct is your voting neighborhood

A precinct is the smallest political unit; residents in a precinct  vote at the same place and have the same ballot.  We care about issues that directly impact us and family members, so it's important to be an Informed Voter on local issues. Each precinct in SD47 can host grassroots effort to register voters, meet Candidates, discuss key issues and get voters to cast a ballot in every election.  

Want to be an involved citizen? It's fun and rewarding to meet your neighbors and talk about things you care about. SD47 has 20 Precincts of about 5,000 voters; each has a Precinct  Chair and two Vice-Chairs (click here for the job description).
