The Michigan Democratic Party is the affiliate of the Democratic Party in the state of Michigan. It is based in Lansing. Lavora Barnes is the party's current chair.[1] She was previously the party's Chief Operating Officer.[2] It is currently the state's favored party, controlling the majority of Michigan's U.S. House seats, both U.S. Senate seats, both houses of the state legislature, and the governorship.


Residents of the state of Michigan at least 16 years of age are eligible for party membership; no financial contribution is required.[3] Generally, a person is required to have been a member for at least 30 days before a convention, caucus or meeting to receive voting privileges.[3]

Between state party conventions, the party is governed by the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC). Delegates to the state central committee are elected at congressional district spring conventions in odd-numbered years.[3] Each district is entitled to at least four delegates consisting of two men and two women, with additional members allocated by congressional district based on the proportion of its vote for the Democratic nominee for President or Secretary of State at the last general election held.[3] Additional ex-officio with voting privileges include the Democratic National Committee members of the state and the officers of the DSCC. Any congressional district or county chairs having not been elected delegates also become DSCC ex-officio members, but without voting privileges.[3]


The DSCC's officers are elected at the spring state convention in odd-numbered years by party members. Officers consists of a Chair, two Vice-Chairs one of each of a different gender and race, Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer, and any additional officers as the convention deems proper.[3] Current major officers for the DSCC include:[4]

  • Chair: Lavora Barnes
  • 1st Vice-Chair:  Jason Morgan
  • 2nd Vice-Chair: Erika Geiss
  • 3rd Vice-Chair: Jonathan Kinloch
  • 4th Vice-Chair: Chris Cracchiolo
  • Youth Vice-Chair: Austin Marsman
  • Secretary: Mary Hall-Thiam
  • Corresponding Secretary: Sami Khaldi
  • Parliamentarian: Nathan Triplett

Officers of the DSCC plus the Democratic National Committee members constitute the Executive Committee of the DSCC. The Executive Committee addresses policy questions in between the meetings of the DSCC.[3] The Executive Committee is also responsible for drawing up a 2-year budget for the DSCC at a spring meeting in odd-numbered years.[3]
