Looking for a current list of Democratic Presidential Candidates? CLICK THIS LINK for the list! This page also includes the latest schedule for debates.
As the 2020 election cycle heats ups, we have had groups supporting individual presidential candidates request use of our headquarters for organizing meetings and phone banking. WE SUPPORT THAT! Because CCDEMS does not endorse candidates in a primary, and because there could be high demand for use of our space (in addition to our own teams’ need for use of the space), we have adopted the Office Rules & Guidelines to ensure equal access to all campaigns.
For full details and a link to request to schedule a block of time, please follow this link.
We are adding more items to our merch table as the election season ramps up. When you make a donation for these items, those funds go directly to support our “Get Out the Vote” efforts for the 2020 efforts! Follow this link to see what we have available right now. We will update as we get new items in.
CCDP's Cornbread & Beans is held at Westwind Unitarian Church, 1309 W. Boyd, Norman. Cafeteria style service will begin at 11:30 (cost $10 payable to the caterer). Of course, purchasing lunch is optional, and guests are welcome to bring a sack lunch. Our guest speaker will begin at noon.

The Cleveland County Democratic Women meet on the 3rd Monday of each month. We gather in the upstairs area of:
575 W. University Blvd., Norman OK
5:00 - 7:00 pm
From 5:00 – 5:45 p.m., we eat, drink, network and laugh. At 5:45 p.m. we will start the meeting off with announcements, then the main presentation at 6:00 p.m., so don't consider yourself "late" if you arrive after 5:00 p.m.
Our mission is to promote civic engagement to improve the quality of life for Cleveland County Democrats. To achieve this mission, we will initiate Calls to Action ranging from quick calls to your elected officials to attending their town halls and conducting publicized office visits in order to push them to represent their constituents. We will provide you with focused, useful information for upcoming elections, for engaging in dialogue with fellow Oklahoman's (especially those with different values and voting habits), and for opportunities to support local progressive organizations and initiatives.
The group leaders are Pam Leader and Margaret Blevins. Please feel free to contact us with any questions via our county email: email@example.com
The Cleveland County Democratic Women have a CLOSED Facebook group where information and action items are shared. You may request to join the group at this link.
