The Brevard County Democratic Executive Committee (DEC) is dedicated to expanding the Democratic electorate and electing Democratic candidates in Brevard County, Florida. We bring our community together to stand up for Democratic ideals of social, racial, economic, and environmental justice.
As the county arm of the Florida Democratic Party, we oversee all Democratic Party activities in Brevard County.
The DEC is an elected body comprised of members, called Precinct Committee(wo)men, who act as neighborhood organizers to register voters and increase voter turnout and engagement in their precincts.
There are 170 voting precincts in Brevard County. Each Precinct has two DEC members, a Precinct Committeewoman and a Precinct Committeeman. Precincts with over 1000 Democratic voters may have an additional pair.
There are currently vacancies in precincts across Brevard, and we'd love you to join us! Go to brevarddems.org/join for more information.
If we want our democracy to be accountable to the people, it must be funded by the people. Invest in democracy today.
