STATE RUNOFF REMINDER
 Early voting begins today and runs through Friday, June 24. If you prefer to vote in person, your runoff election is Tuesday, June 28.

You can review your election location here.


OUR EYES, EARS, AND BOOTS ARE ON THE GROUND


Our candidates want to meet with and hear from YOU. Please reach out if you would like to meet your SC house nominee. If you’d like information about events with our state and federal candidates, or if you are interested in volunteering with county organizations. We are going to have a fantastic slate of candidates in November, but they will need YOUR help to get across the finish line.


CCDP PARTICIPATION IN PRIDE

June is Pride Month, and CCDP is excited to walk in the Pride Parade on June 25th! You can access our updated webpage, sign up to participate in the Pride Parade, or donate.

We are looking for someone with a pickup truck and trailer or a golf cart that we can decorate as the float. If you can provide this, please email sagid@charlestondemocrats.com!

Happy Pride!

CCDP @2022 Charleston Pride Parade! 

That’s right! Charleston Pride Parade is back for 2022! CCDP is proud to support the LGBTQ+ community and join in on the festivities! We will have a decorated trailer, hand out candy, stickers, and flyers, and let our Pride flags fly. We will gather at 8am at Wragg Mall by the Visitors Center, and the parade starts at 9.

This year the parade route is shorter and will just be down King St. from Ann St. to Market St. There will be limited seating for those that need it on the trailer, but otherwise, all participants will be walking as group along the route.

All participants will receive a free t-shirt. However, we are asking for a donation of $20 per shirt to cover our costs. Click here to donate towards shirts, decorating supplies, and giveaways.
