Alert! Presidential Primary Info!
Mail-in voting for the Kansas Presidential Primary begins soon!
All registered Democrats will receive a ballot in the mail soon after March 30. Simply complete it, slip it into its privacy sleeve and return envelope, and put it back into the mail before April 27.
If you aren’t registered as a Democrat or didn’t receive a ballot, but would like to vote, change your party affiliation at ksvotes.org (if needed), then contact the Kansas Democratic Party at KansasDems.org or at (785) 234-0425 before April 17 to request a ballot.
While the KDP and MCDP both encourage you to mail your ballot in, the KDP still plans for in-person voting on May 2. Bring your ballot with its privacy sleeve with you to the Civic Center, 410 N Penn, in Independence for easiest voting, but if you don’t have a ballot, you can still vote.
You can register as a Democrat up to and including May 2.
Welcome to the Montgomery County Democratic Party!
We are excited that you’re here. One of our major goals is to grow our party in order to have a meaningful impact on our local, state, and national governments. The fact that you are reading this shows that you have an interest in making an impact, too.
It’s been said that all politics are local. The county party is about as local as it gets. We want this website to serve as a resource for information about our communities and local issues as much or more than as a platform to share Democratic Party principles and goals.
Please use the Contact tab to share your ideas and concerns or to ask questions about our organization. We welcome your thoughts about what is most important to Montgomery Countians.
And consider yourself invited to join us in our endeavors! We meet once a month on the 1st Thursday at 6 pm. Locations may vary and will be posted on our calendar.
Again, thank you for visiting our site. We hope you’ll consider becoming an active participant in the party!

Change starts at the local level. County parties play a key role in getting out the vote, raising awareness on issues effecting Kansans, and keeping communities involved. County parties are a major reason why I'm in office. Without your voice, without your efforts — I wouldn't have made it this far. I want to say thank you for your tireless work and please continue the fight to keep Kansans involved and engaged.
'All politics is local', a phrase closely associated with the former Democratic Speaker of the House, Tip O’Neill, is especially relevant today. The opportunity to move our communities to be more innovative in regard to protecting our environment and protecting freedom for all individuals begins at the local level in our cities, counties, and school boards. Now is the time for good Kansas Democrats to step up and run for local offices in 2019.
I cannot stress enough the importance of the county party. Grass roots is really the foundation of any political party. The county party also gives people an opportunity to feel enfranchised in our political process. During all the years I was growing up and in my young adulthood, we had so many Montgomery County Democrats that we packed a meeting place. We need to get back to that. I believe our new leadership will be a re-boot to the MCDCC.
Montgomery County voters, i.e. Republicans, helped put Steve Watkins in office as U.S. Congressman, even though he lied about his "accomplisments." We as Democrats must say "Never Again!" We must work harder, walk farther and take our friends and families to Get Out the Vote!! We must hold our elected officials' feet to the fire and let them know when they forget about us. This county has always been a county of moderates, both Democrats and Republicans, but not any more. We have got to change that.
