Let’s Take A Break!

A working break that is. Year 2021 is the non-election year of the 4 year cycle. This is an opportunity for the Elkhart County Democrats to assess and prepare for action moving forward. It is also time for our party to develop for growth into the future.

Some things to think about:

  • Becoming an active Precinct Chair
    • Be part of building a team to be the New Blue Wave in Elkhart County.
    • Info about requirements and duties of a precinct chair is available at .
    • The link to download the Precinct Chair Interest Form can also be found at that same location on our website.
    • The completed form may be sent to Chad Crabtree, C/O ECDP, PO Box 1116, Elkhart IN 46515-1116.
    • Current Precinct Chair terms end with the primary election in May 2022.
  • 2021 is Reorganization year for ECDP.
    • Our precinct chairs will be reviewing and voting for candidates for the Central Committee positions in March.
    • Folks who are interested in running for Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, or Treasurer can submit your interest to our current Chair, Chad Crabtree at
  • Check out races that will be up for election in the 2022 Mid-terms.
    • Races will include US 2nd District Congress, some US House of Representative seats, 1 Indiana US Senate seat, some State House and Senate seats, some county seats, some school board (non-partisan) seats, Dem precinct chair seats (effective as of Primary election day), and maybe more.
    • Think about how you want to serve.
      • Run for office?
        • You have time to check out any office you might be interested in holding.
          • Talk to current and former elected and appointed officials who interact with the position.
          • Research online to find out the scope and requirements of the job.
          • Attend public meetings that an official in the position participates in as a member of a council, board, reporting administration, liaison, etc.
          • Talk to community members about how they see
      • Encourage someone you feel should be in office to run.
        • Support (perhaps chair) that person’s campaign.
      • Volunteer with party efforts.
        • Outreach coordination and assistance.
        • Building the party’s membership.
        • Updating the party’s focusses – our members are the party.
        • Get Out The Vote efforts.
        • Voter education .
        • County-wide Dem campaigns.
        • Fundraising – general and campaign match funds.
          • Wouldn’t it be great to have a headquarters to work from together?
          • Rebuilding the campaign match fund to support our local candidates.

Do the 2021 Dem Dance!
