What we do
The George Mason Democrats are the official Democratic Party organization on the campus of George Mason University. We knock doors and make calls on behalf of our Democratic candidates while registering our fellow students to vote and educating the student body on the values and principles of the Democratic Party. If you consider yourself a Democrat, welcome to the Party!
Why you should join
When we asked our members the reason they work so hard to #KeepGMUBlue, the #1 reason they stated was: the people. The people in this organization are some of the most dedicated, hardworking people you’ll meet in your college career, and they’ll push you to succeed in every part of your life. Join us and make lifelong friends your first day on campus!
A high-functioning campaign organization
We know that the best way to influence policy at all levels of government is by winning elections. We also know that the only way to win is by knocking doors, making calls, and registering voters – which is exactly what we do every single day. We registered over 4,000 Mason students to vote in 2016 and contacted over 25,000 voters in Fall 2016 alone.
We elect Democrats at every level
It is our belief that no race should go unchallenged and that all Democrats should have the opportunity to win. We commit to electing Democrats in all parts of Virginia and contributing our energy to winning elections at every level of government – from School Board to the White House. That’s why in 2017, we worked with a total of 24 different campaigns, knocked 19,853 doors, and made 28,240 phone calls. We know how to elect Democrats in all corners of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and our members are the driving force behind every Democratic victory.
