We have made great strides in Clermont County since 2016. How can you help keep that momentum going? Join our Donkey Club and your donation will help to amplify the Democratic voice in Clermont County. Every member of the Clermont County Democratic team is a volunteer, but the hard work is not enough. We need your donation to help local candidates, create and promote community events, and to keep our office open. Not all counties are lucky enough to have a full-time office to support its blue citizens in a sea of red.
You can opt for one of our preselected donation levels or chose your own. You can even set up a reoccurring donation. Use the secure link to donate today at ClermontDems.org .
We are proud to announce that our newly designed website is LIVE! You will be able to find the latest county news, local events, and community resources. Find out how to contact your elected officials. Meet your Precinct Captain. Discover all of your voting resources linked at one page. Our site has it all for you. Bookmark us and know we've got your back.
Interested in running for office? Learn the basics with ODP’s Main Street Training.
Training director, Sam Melendez, is holding an all-day session in Columbus. All are geared to 2019 (local) races. Every township has at least one trustee position and the fiscal officer up for election in November. All cities, villages, etc. also have elections, plus there are school board seats up as well. If we are to change Ohio, we must start at the local level. Offering voters a choice and a voice is fundamental to democracy.
Saturday March 2
- Statewide training for candidates in Columbus; this will last all day.

Local Government Spotlight: Pierce Township
Founded in 1853, Pierce Township encompasses 23.5 square miles located in the Southwest corner of Clermont County, Ohio. With over 14,000 residents, Pierce has been able to maintain its rural charm as it’s grown and transformed from a farming community into primarily a residential community.
You can view the township's official website HERE.
Pierce Township is governed by three elected trustees and a fiscal officer.
