Our Committee is formed from Democrats from each Precinct within the seven Wards of Springfield Township. Committee members are elected during off-year Primary Elections and serve a 4-year term. Each Precinct has two elected members, and may also have up to two more at large members. Members may be appointed to fill vacancies by the existing Committee throughout the year.
Our Committee follows the By-Laws of the Delaware County Democratic Party , as well as Pennsylvania and National Democratic Party Rules. Our members are tasked with growing and strengthening the Democratic Party as a whole, and Springfield Township in particular. We canvass our neighborhoods to educate voters about Democratic candidates and to encourage election turnout. We assist at the polls on election day by staffing our neighborhood polling places.
Committee members also participate in the Delaware County Democratic Party by vetting candidates at Committee meetings and neighborhood meet & greet events. And, we participate in endorsement processes at both the local and County levels.
Our current Committee list is shown below. For more details about the duties of a Committee member, review the Precinct Committee Person Guide & Resources, prepared by the Delaware County Democratic Party.
If you are a Springfield Township Democrat, and you want greater transparency, fairness, diversity and accountability in Springfield’s government, contact us for information about becoming a Committee member. A strong Committee is vital to ensuring the success of the Springfield Democratic party, and in turn, the County and State Parties!
