4/7 The Democratic Party is one of the two major political parties in the Mock Election Community, along with the Republican Party. It was founded on August 9, 2016 by Jack Smith (Alt of Tim Taft), when the Mock Election Community began.
- Presidential Candidates
When the MECDP started it was a heavy minority with only 12% of members being Democrats according to the Party Registration Poll.
The first Democratic nominee was Issc from California, who ran and won against Jane Pierce (Alt of Caleb Andrew) from Maryland. Adam the Gamer (now known as Adam Daniel) did run for the Democratic nomination, but withdrew after less than a week to run for the Independent nomination. Issc chose Pierce as his Vice President and lost in a landslide to Japheth Hilton.
The Democratic Party continued their low numbers well into the Second Season of MEC although they advanced to 35% in the Registration Poll. This time the nominee was Jonathan Gathers, though Drake Caprio, Issc, and Duncan Daly had also run. Jonathan Gathers lost the election to independent Gabe Fly in a very close race.
Though they did not have a nominee in season three, throwing their support behind then Republican Ethan Kelly or Communist Vladmir Petrov (Just kidding, nobody liked Petrov), Ethan Kelly ran as a Democrat in the next election against Gabe Fly, becoming the first Democrat to win an Election in MEC history. This coincided with an influx of Democratic voters, causing Democrats to have a majority for the first time in MEC history. They continue to have a majority to this day.
The Democratic Party once again nominated Kelly in the season 5 election, which was against Reform Party candidate Caleb Andrew. Many prominent Democrats left for the Reform Party this election, due to the Democratic Party favoring the Mod Council. Nonetheless, Kelly won the election in a very close race.
The Party nominated Kelvin Hawthorne in Season Eight, and he won against Caleb Caron in a landslide. The DNC nominated Ethan Fitzgerald in Season 9, and on November 5th, Ethan Fitzgerald was elected after a day of poll closings, by 285 electoral votes, having the state of Texas putting him over the top, against Republican Nominee, Adam Evans. The party again nominated Fitzgerald in Season 11, who lost the election to Jon S. Überfeld.
During Season 12, the party nominated Fitzgerald for the third time. However, the party did not hold a primary, despite three other candidates running, most prominently Joshua Huntington. Chairman Tom Kirkman claimed that Ethan Kelly had not permitted him to hold one. Less than two hours after accepting the nomination, Ethan Fitzgerald dropped out of the race. The party then nominated Jackson Hitchcock, who lost in a landslide to Jon S. Uberfeld.
