Local Chapters

Local Chapters can be charted by geographical location or educational institutions. Traditionally, they are charted by county and college. We also accept high school chapters. Local chapters are managed by the Eastern, Southern, and Western Washington Directors, whose roles are to provide guidance and resources from YDWA.

Chartering a New Local Chapter

To charter a chapter you need:

  • 5 members
  • A record of a meeting where members voted to create your local chapter
  • A governing document (constitution and bylaws) approved at a past meeting (contact us for samples)

Send these materials to the Eastern Director if you are located east of the mountains, the Western Director if you are located west of the mountains, or the Southern Director if you’re located further south.

    Hi YDWA, my name is AK & I live in Spokane, I would like to join a local chapter. What is the best way for me to join the young democrats?

  2. Alexander Hammond, PH.D. says:

    I urge the YD of WSU to oppose the YR’s symbolic building of Trump’s wall. I also, as long-time member of the Whitman County Democrats and Emeritus faculty member of WSU, urge the YD’s to bring the issue home to WSU students by sponsoring a CUB debate on the proposition that Mike Leach, WSU’s football coach, should apologize for abusing his position and the university by pubically endorsing Donald Trump fpr president–a man whose racist, sexist, xenophobic values are opposed to everything that WSU works to overcome.
