La Porte County Indiana Democrats

The basic mission of the La Porte County Democratic Party is to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in La Porte County. While this is our operational mission, our vision for La Porte County is much more than that. We believe that when Democrats are in office, good things happen for Hoosiers.
