The Democratic Executive Committee (DEC) is the governing body of the Democratic Party in Miami-Dade County. The voting members of the DEC are primarily the Elected Members, also known as the committeemen and committeewomen from each district. These members are required to attend our meetings held every other month.
We currently have plenty of openings for new members to be voted in by the existing body. Please see expectations below.
