Volunteers are the backbone of our Democracy.  Florida has elections every year and each year the Alachua County Democratic Committee (ACDEC) registers new voters, organizes more than 63 precincts, protects people’s Right to Vote, supplies campaigns with important resources, sponsors an internship program with dozens of young people, makes sure our voters know who is on the ballot, how they stand on the issues, where to vote, how to vote absentee, and we get our voters out to vote on Election Days.



The Alachua County Democratic Executive Committee (ACDEC) is the official representative body of registered Democrats in this county and is governed by the State of Florida and the Florida Democratic Party.

DEC meetings are open to the public and committed Democrats are encouraged to attend. Meetings are on the second Wednesday of each month starting at 7:00 p.m. and ending no later than 9:00 p.m. They are held in the Hall of Heroes Meeting Room of the Gainesville Police Department Building, 545 NW 8th Ave, Gainesville FL 32601.
