Welcome to the CIDC website!


The Cape and Islands Democratic Council promotes Democratic values on Cape Cod, Marthas Vineyard, and Nantucket.

We encourage the open discussion of policy and issues and putting thoughts into elected actions!

Mark --

As we recover from the Impeachment travesty, it is now more important than ever to work forward on Victory 2020!  New Hampshire is the next local battle, plus the preparations for our own Massachusetts Caucuses and Primaries. Canvassers and callers are needed both locally and nationally!

Please also contact your local DTCs to get on their mailing lists, join them for their regular meetings and caucus for the convention!


Please also remember to forward this on to your friends and join our mailing list!
