The West Hartford Democrats are a diverse and dedicated group of West Hartford residents who care deeply about their community and are willing to fight for a better, fairer, and brighter future for all. As such, we support the activities of the Democratic Party by endorsing candidates for elected office and volunteering our time and talents to help those candidates run successful campaigns.

We typically meet on the third Thursday of every month in the council chambers at West Hartford Town Hall. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings will be held virtually until further notice.

Please browse our website to learn more about who we are, what we do, and how you can get involved. You will also find voter resources and contact information for our local and statewide elected officials.


For the August 2020 Presidential and State Primary, all registered Democrats and Republicans in Connecticut can vote by Absentee Ballot due to the COVID-19 virus, pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order No. 7QQ.

Absentee Ballot applications will be sent to all active Democrats. If you don’t receive one, you can request one from the Town Clerk. If you plan to vote absentee, fill out the application completely. Check the COVID-19 box if that’s the reason and sign the application. Be sure the Town Clerk’s address shows through the window in the postage-paid reply envelope. Return your application as soon as possible!

Your Absentee Ballot will arrive after July 21. Simply fill it out and drop it in the mail no later than August 6 to ensure that it is received by August 11.
