At the Lexington County Democratic Party (LCDP), we are committed to protecting your privacy online. While using our website, you do not have to identify yourself or divulge personal information. If you should choose to give us your personal information, you decide the amount of information you provide.
The LCDP is continually trying to expand online activism and to give voters the information they need in a timely manner. As a result, we may periodically ask you to provide information such as your name, address, phone number and email address in an effort to enhance our ability to work with you as an online activist. If you choose not to give us any information, we may not be able to provide you with timely information regarding events and issues important to you as a politically interested and active citizen.

We treat your name, city, state, and any comments as public information. We may, or example, provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to local, state or national leaders, without disclosing email addresses. We may also make comments along with your city/town available to the press and public online.
