Abigail is Dedicated to Strengthening Democracy and Engaging Voters

At a time when the integrity of our democracy is being tested, Abigail knows it is more important than ever to have strong, bridge-builders in leadership roles who have the energy and commitment to engage every community. 

In the northwest Bronx, fewer than 50% of eligible voters vote in local elections. Democracy only works when everyone has a voice, and Abigail is committed to addressing voter apathy and expanding the electorate. With so many critical elections ahead, it is now more important than ever to engage voters and to address the issues that lead to low voter turnout.

As District Leader, Abigail is using her voice to advocate

for reforms that will increase participation and

make our democracy more responsive to the people.

What Is A District Leader?

District Leaders are elected, unpaid leaders within The Bronx Democratic Party. One female and one male District Leader represent each Assembly District in The Bronx. 

Together, with the Chair of The Bronx County Democratic Committee (“County Committee”), all of the District Leaders in The Bronx serve as the Executive Committee of the Democratic County Committee.  

What does a District Leader do?

District Leaders make decisions that affect everyday Bronxites:

  • Serve on The Bronx Democratic County Committee.

  • Vote on Democratic Party leadership.

  • Vote on the Chairperson of The Bronx Democratic Party’s Executive Committee.

  • Assign poll workers to election sites within the district.

  • Participate as members of the State Democratic Party and select Democratic National Committee Members.

  • Influence policies for the local Democratic Party’s structure and function.
