The Smith Mountain Lake Democrats is a growing, diverse group of broad-minded people who provide opportunities for Democrats and Independents to come together in the lake area. We work, socialize, volunteer in the community and support one another in this "red" part of Virginia.


The SML Democrats meet on the fourth Monday of each month at 12:00 PM, usually including a luncheon, and at a location to be announced. Each third meeting is held at 7:00 pm, usually at the SML Dems' Office.
Additionally, we usually have a monthly social, "Pints and Politics," an informal dinner at a local restaurant during which our members can enjoy time with like-minded friends.
As the size of our club has increased, finding locations to accommodate our group has become more challenging. It has also become necessary for us to make more definitive arangements with such locations in advance. Thus, those planning to attend meetings or Pints and Politics are asked to let us know by an RSVP in advance to smldems@gmail.com.

The next General Meeting will be held October 23 at 7:00PM at the Office. The primary topic for the meeting will be preparations for the upcoming election and Get Out The Vote (GOTV) activities.

The next Pints and Politics is being arranged for Beales Brewery in Bedford. October 24, 5:30 PM
