Welcome to the Siskiyou County Democrats Website. Before we talk about our organization and our current activities, we thought you might be interested in learning a bit about where we live. Then please explore the rest of our website where you can learn more about our organization and our candidates. You can volunteer, donate and learn about our local candidates.
Siskiyou County is located in inland northern California, adjacent to the Oregon border. Most of the population of 45,000+ people live along the I-5 corridor running thru the middle of the county. Traditional industries in the region are resource-based and include forest products, mining, agriculture and ranching. As more people discover the mild climate and the picturesque natural beauty of our mountains and valleys, our communities are becoming retirement and vacation destinations. The names of our communities- from biggest population to smallest are Yreka, Mt. Shasta, Weed, Dunsmuir, Montague, Tulelake, Dorris, Etna, Ft. Jones along with several smaller unincorporated towns. Political affiliation percentage is 37% Democrat, 42% Republican and 21% Independent.
Again welcome to the online presence of the Siskiyou County Democrats. We hope you will join us in or efforts to promote strong ethical conduct in government, social justice and human rights.
