Mississippi Democrats in Action
BRIEFS ABOUT DEMOCRATIC HAPPENINGS THROUGHOUT THE STATE
Welcome to our party!
Here you can find events sponsored by Democrats and their friends throughout the state and at every level. Let us know as soon as possible about your Democrat-friendly events including rallies, town hall meetings, fund-raisers and routine party meetings. Please try to submit the information as early as possible because last minute submissions have little genuine impact on attendance.
How to submit events
You must submit your Democratic Party events directly to the web editor. Please keep your submission brief (150 words or less) and make sure that it includes the date, time, location, the sponsoring group and a brief description of the activity. Also include an admission cost, if any and contact information. Only events submitted by officers of state and local committee, officers of chapters of recognized Democratic affiliates or their properly designated officials will be published. We cannot accept submissions individual candidates' campaigns during primary elections.
Contact the website manager if you wish to submit an image.
