Full heart after putting new winter coats on the kids at @UnityKnightsK5…

It's Christmas. But let's make Claus, I mean calls. (WB)

GOP and Gov Reynolds have failed to make life better for working families in education, healthcare, and stewardship of their tax dollars 3/3

Iowa ranks dead last in the country for economic growth, and the next legislative session will be spent paying off $144 million of debt. 2/3

The state budget has become an embarrassment to all Iowans, regardless of political beliefs. Squandered on tax breaks we couldnt afford 1/3

"Get Out the Vote" hopes to up voter count for special Iowa State Senate election Tuesday…

About Us

About the Woodbury County Democrats

The Woodbury County Democrats exist simply to help Democratic candidates get elected. We concentrate on local elections, of course, Woodburys Dems

but we also help at the state and national levels as much as possible.   This is done through a variety of means — though primarily by giving local candidates as much exposure as possible.


The Central Committee is the backbone of the Woodbury County Democrats. The Central Committee meets monthly. Most members of the Central Committee are elected every two years during the precinct caucuses. Each precinct is represented on the Central Committee. Members may also be appointed by the Chair, and there are a number of at-large members. NOTE: Any interested Democrat may attend the Central Committee meetings!

The Executive Committee is a much smaller group that meets monthly to deal with the mundane details that crop up. Members of the Executive Committee tend to be more active with the party on a day-to-day basis.


The Woodbury County Democrats hold a number of recurring events, such as breakfasts, fundraisers, dinners, etc. Please check our calendar to see what’s coming up!
