Useful Links

If you don't vote by mail, why not? You can still vote at a regular polling place, but you add an extra option to drop your ballot in the mail just in case something comes up that keeps you from a polling place. The ballot only needs to be postmarked by election day and needs no postage.

Communities Served

We started in 1970 as the Chatsworth Democratic Club. Then we became the North Valley Democratic Club. While we keep the North Valley name, we now serve the entire San Fernando Valley including Arleta, Bell Canyon, Calabasas, Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Chatsworth Lake Manor, Encino, Granada Hills, Hidden Hills, Lake Balboa, Lake View Terrace, Mission Hills, North Hills, North Hollywood, Northridge, Pacoima, Panorama City, Porter Ranch, Reseda, San Fernando, Shadow Hills, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Sun Valley, Sunland, Sylmar, Tarzana, Toluca Lake, Tujunga, Universal City, Valley Village, Van Nuys, West Hills, Winnetka, and Woodland Hills.

Our job is to elect Democrats, and elections go by districts. Because we share districts with areas such as Simi Valley and Santa Clarita, we work in those areas and coordinate with clubs there. Many of our members are from adjacent areas on all sides of the Valley.
