Ways to Volunteer

The Gallatin County Democrats are made up almost entirely of volunteers and there is always room for your voice, ideas, time, talent and resources! Before are just some of the ways that you can get involved and make an impact locally and make a difference.

Make an impact at the most local level possible and volunteer to serve as a precinct committee representative. There are many vacant precinct positions, so check out our precinct map to see if you live in a precinct in need of a representative. Below is a list of vacancies. For each precinct, the Montana Democratic Party Rules state that there must be two representatives of different gender identities. In addition, precinct representatives must live within the boundaries of their precinct.

Precinct committee representatives typically serve a two-year term and are elected/appointed by the Central Committee. Once you are elected, you’ll have a vote on the Central Committee.

As a precinct representative, you’ll have the opportunity to organize your neighbors, get out the vote, promote your candidates, and build your community.  To learn more, contact us.

The Central Committee created various sub-committees to more effectively manage and implement our mission. The following sub-committees welcome new volunteers and input. Contact us to learn more.

Reach is a new-to-us organizing app that helps us connect with our networks about all the work we’re doing for Democratic values, policies, and calls-to-action. 

We’ll be transitioning our Reach from campaign to community-building in the coming weeks. If you’d like to learn more, send Alyson an email.

Join us for any of our monthly meetings where we talk about current volunteer opportunities, important community action, and more. Visit our events for information on upcoming meetings. 

Since March 2020, we have been meeting on Zoom, and we do not anticipate this will change any time soon. 

We welcome everyone to share their ideas on what we can do to continue to build our community, engage Gallatin County residents in Democratic values, and support our neighbors across the state. 

If you have suggestions, share them! Email us, give us a call, send a text, or attend a meeting
