Message from the Executive Committee

“The Executive Committee of the Chesterfield County Democratic Committee would like to thank the hard-working and dedicated volunteers who gave their time on Election Day to help turn Chesterfield Blue for President – the first time that has happened since 1948! We are grateful for the level of engagement and tireless efforts of our Chesterfield residents.

We would also like to remind all of our elected officials in Chesterfield County that they should never jeopardize the safety of any volunteers, regardless of party. We are calling on all elected officials in Chesterfield County and the Commonwealth to commit to leading with integrity in 2021 as we elect our next Governor.”

Press Release


May 31, 2020
Contact: Sara M. Gaborik, Chair (804)334-4351


“We stand with the protesters who are gathering in the names of George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubery, Breonna Taylor and so many other black lives lost to rampant and systemic racism.  Too many of your voices are silenced, but we, the Chesterfield Democratic Committee, see, hear, and support you. We will not stand by in silence as injustice occurs around us. We demand the arrest of all officers involved in the killing of George Floyd.

We are at a place in our history where we all must speak out for change.  We stand with our brothers and sisters of color in their fight for true equality and fairness.

We commit to

  • educating ourselves on the issues facing our black community

  • supporting the lead of organizations working for the black community

  • providing opportunities for our Democratic leaders to engage and work with the black community

  • advocating for legislative changes

  • taking actions to improve the lives of the black community

Black Lives Matter. We will be a vocal and an active part of the solution. That is our commitment.”

Apply to be an Officer of Election in Chesterfield

Help make voting safer for your neighbors.

If you are interested in applying to be an Officer of Election to work INSIDE a polling place at the November 3, 2020 election, please fill out the Officer of Election Interest Form, and the Registrar’s team will be in touch with you to schedule training. Our Registrar could really use the help right now during the COVID-19 crisis as a lot of the current volunteers are members of high-risk groups and should not be in contact with the public at this level. There WILL be precautions taken – distancing practices, gloves, masks, etc. If you have any questions, send 1st Vice Chair Becky Conner an email at
