Our Mission

The Lake Ashton Democratic Club (LADC) of Polk County, Florida is an active political organization that serves as a common meeting ground for all Democrats. Dedicated to furthering the ideals of the Democratic Party, we also welcome non-party affiliated kindred spirits.

Snowflakes Are Back!

Get Involved with a great group of like minded individuals to help prepare for the 2023/2024 Elections. We meet every Tuesday evening at the HFC Community Ctr in the poker room from 6-8pm. 

Snowflakes at Work!

This is important work that helps your fellow  Democrats to be (re)Elected!

Our Democratic Way of Life Is At Risk!

If you want to save our Democracy, you have to VOTE!

If you want a say in what gets put into law – VOTE!

(You know what the Republicans stand for! If you want that, vote Republican)

That means vote in local and county elections. That means vote in State elections. That means vote in National elections.

That means vote in EVERY election!




Save yourself time and frustration… Vote by Mail!

Our voting system is based upon one person, one vote. And of the voting population, only sixty-seven percent of those eligible voters voted in the 2020 election! That was the highest voter turnout in the 21st century. Many third world countries have voting participation approaching 90%. The largest number of people who didn’t participate in the voting population was our youth.

Our constitutional crisis is already here

The United States is heading into its greatest political and constitutional crisis since the Civil War, with a reasonable chance over the next three to four years of incidents of mass violence, a breakdown of federal authority, and the division of the country into warring red and blue enclaves.
