About Us

Hello Fellow Young Democrat!

Thank you for your interest in the Nassau County Young Democrats.  We appreciate and support our members, community, and candidates as much as possible, especially during campaign season.  We talk about local, state, and national issues and many candidates and elected officials speak to the YD’s and share their experiences.

We are a youth arm of the Nassau County Democratic Committee (NCDC) and our decisions regarding candidate support remains in line with the endorsement from the NCDC.  We also support and endorse Democrats in the local towns & villages, county races, in New York State, in congressional races and presidential candidates.  

We do a lot of fun activities throughout the year, especially in the political off-season. Annual events include bowling nights, happy hours, holiday parties, a softball game, and more.

To become an official member, there are certain criteria as follows:

    • Eligibility: Democrats between the ages of 16 and 36 are welcome to join as long as you live, go to school, or work in Nassau County.
  • Young at Heart Dems at ages 37+ who would like to join are eligible as members without voting privileges. This requires a $25 fee.
  • Annual Membership Dues:  If you are a student, the cost is discounted to a small fee of $15 per year.  If you are not a student, then the cost is slightly higher at $25 per year.  We ask that you pay by check and mail it to the Nassau County Democratic Committee Headquarters at 500 Old Country Road, Suite 103, Garden City, NY 11530 OR bring it with you to our next meeting.

We are asking you to give us these physical documents because they’re required for our financial filings with the state.

You do not have to be an official member to participate in the majority of our events and meetings, however, becoming a member has perks such as attending private events and voting privileges (according to our bylaws, voting privileges are also based on meeting/event attendance).

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact our President, Lauren Summa, at ncydmembership@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to your participation within our organization.
