Show your support for Wisconsin’s Democratic candidates up and down the ticket by becoming a member today.
Growing Your Local Party A membership in the State Party automatically makes you a member of your County Party, and vice-versa. Membership in your County Party gives you the opportunity to influence politics on a local level, and connects you with other Democrats in your area.
Joining a Caucus Our caucuses represent the rich diversity of our members. They bring people together around issues that face each of these groups. Most caucuses hold regular meetings and social events.
These are the current caucuses of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin:
American Indian Caucus Black Caucus Labor Caucus Latino Caucus LGBT Caucus Progressive Caucus Rural Caucus Veterans’ Caucus Women’s Caucus
Where Your Money Goes Your membership fee supports Democrats on all levels, in all corners of the state. A portion of your membership goes straight to your local County Party, directly benefiting Democrats in your area. Membership fees help us keep Party offices open year-round and our organizers working around the state. We depend on memberships to fund our daily operations, even in off-election years
