Canton Democrats came together decades ago to create a community bolstered by a common understanding: that we are greater together than we are on our own. 

Like democrats everywhere, we believe our town, state, and country can only succeed when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Our party is focused on building an economy that lifts up all Americans, not just those at the top.


Our Mission

The Canton Democratic Town Committee advocates for social and economic issues in Canton, CT;  engages residents of all parties to vote; and elects leaders who will build our economy, protect our civil liberties, stand up for justice, and conserve our environment.


Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
— John F. Kennedy
