Committee People & Ward Leaders

Every 4 years, the City of Philadelphia elects 3,406 neighborhood advocates and political organizers as Democratic Committeepeople. They are an organizing force and the backbone of the Party. Together they and their chosen volunteer Ward Leaders are known as the Philadelphia Democratic Party.

Philadelphia is geographically divided into 66 wards. Each ward is further divided into 10-50 divisions based on population. Every four years, during the primary election of the Governor’s race, registered Democratic voters in each division elect two of their neighbors to serve as the division’s Democratic Committeepeople. The elected Committeepeople make up each party’s Ward Committee, and vote for a Ward Leader shortly after the election at a meeting of the Ward committee.
