Building working-class power through electoral politics
Elections are the most widely accessible forums for political democracy in the United States. They are not the only sites for democracy; DSA also focuses on the structured organizing of workers, tenants and members of our communities. But with nominal eligibility of all citizens 18 and older, the voting electorate is our largest political base. DSA organizes in elections to win and wield power for the working class, and to talk about our democratic socialist vision for a fairer and more sustainable future.
DSA’s National Electoral Commission has produced a number of trainings and other resources for chapters at all stages of campaign readiness.
