Monthly meetings are 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month, starting in April. The location will be Nicholasville Police Department. All JCDP meetings are open to the public. Only JCDP Executive Committee members are allowed to vote on business issues; however, input from all Jessamine County Democrats is welcome and encouraged.

Before the election in November, the party is planning two special events.

On Sep. 22, 2023, there will be a rally for all Democratic candidates. The Annual Chili Supper is in October. Locations and times will be announced at a later date. Throughout the year, this is an exciting event to raise money for local and statewide candidates. With this being a gubernatorial election year, Governor Beasher has been invited to attend the chili supper.
