Join the Berkeley Democratic Club

Thank you for your interest in joining the BDC! We’re happy to have you. We currently offer memberships for students, individuals, and couples.

Joining the Berkeley Democratic Club gives you full voting privileges in our endorsement meetings. Because we are the biggest Democratic club in Alameda County, our endorsement is a sought-after badge of electability.

For the purpose of voting in our endorsement meetings, your membership officially begins when our treasurer has your payment in hand. Per our endorsement rules, only members who paid more than 60 days in advance of an endorsement meeting are eligible to vote in that meeting (for more info, see our club bylaws). Our first endorsement meeting is Septmber 1st, so the deadline for membership to participate in our fall 2016 endorsements is Saturday, July 2, 2016.


Membership Levels:

$25 – Student
$40 – Individual
$60 – Couple
