Is Your Democratic Township Alive?

The Township system is a means for Democrats to organize themselves geographically and regionally.  Ostensibly, it is a statewide system providing for communication with the State and National parties.  Township committees are strictly citizendriven and voluntary.  It takes a committed community member with an activist nature to form and maintain a committee.  But, there is no more important way for Democrats in the St. Louis area and ultimately in Missouri to organize.  Listed below are the Democratic Townships in St. Louis County alone:

Active township committees have either live links or Facebook pages.  If you discover that your township does not appear to be active it doesn’t mean that it isn’t.  Some township committees combine with other townships for their meetings.

  1. Melissa, Great Question. I found out that my township was Chesterfield by asking people at the West County Democrats meeting. Seems there isn’t a comprehensive and up to date source of information and that boundaries for townships are fluid. So, locate the township nearest where you live. Find someone at a WCD meeting or from the Booklet of WCD members and begin asking questions. It took a little detective work. Oakville is an active township. Bonhomme is as well and is comprised of Kirkwood, Webster, and Sunset Hills. chesterfield, it turns out, is part of Parkway-Pattonville. Maryland Heights is active. Wish it was more direct. Please let me know if this helps. Mark Kumming
