Meet our YDO President, Joshua Harris-Till

Joshua Harris-Till was elected President of Young Democrats of Oklahoma in 2017 along with a slate of organized, inspiring, and vibrant young professionals.

Prior to being our President, Joshua Harris-Till ran for the Second Congressional District of OK. Taking that experience he has since been a vital resource for young candidates across the state and county.

 Now, Joshua is taking his experience and running for President of the National Organization of Young Democrats and we couldn’t be more thrilled. 

Want to learn more about how our organization is structured?

The Young Democrats of Oklahoma is a state chapter of the national organization, Young Democrats of America. Our state party has High School Organizations, College Chapters, and County Chapters to help every region of OK stay active.

The Young Democrats of America

The Young Democrats of America (YDA) is the largest youth-led, partisan political organization in the nation.  The Young Democrats of America mobilizes young people under the age of 36 to participate in the electoral process to elect Democrats, influence the ideals of the Democratic Party, advocate for progressive issues, and train the next generation of progressive leaders.

Young Democrats of America - South Central Region

Oklahoma is a part of the Young Democrats of America South Central Region. This region encompasses Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Missouri. 

Oklahoma College Young Democrats

We have chapters all over the state in colleges, trade schools, and vocational institutes. Through this organization we mobilize campuses to become hubs of activity. College Dems work to connect students with local campaigns and organizations, helping these students gain political experience while they earn their degree. 

Oklahoma High School Young Democrats

We’re working hard to start chapters in every High School across the state. Our High School YD chapters educate their members on how students can engage in the political process before and after reaching the voting age. High School YD’s also work to register voters in their schools once they become of age. These chapters often have guest speakers like Candidates or sitting Representatives who inspire HSYD’s into getting involved. 

Young Democrats of Oklahoma County Chapters

Currently there a little over 20 counties with current chapters. Scroll below to learn more about starting a county party.

County Chapters of Young Democrats of Oklahoma

 

The Young Democrats of Oklahoma challenges each of the 77 counties to found their own Young Democrats chapter. County Chapter organizations mobilize local Young Democrats as a resource for local and state races. County organizations elect their own chapter Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary.
