Burlington - US Senator Bernie Sanders says it is imperative to get more people involved in the democratic process to revitalise America.

Sanders, an independent from Vermont, appeared on Thursday evening at fundraiser for the Vermont Democratic Party with US Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who also serves as deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee.

The two appeared along with top Vermont Democrats two days after Democrats across the US made strong political gains.

Sanders says Ellison has been traveling the country and opening the doors of the Democratic party to young people, working people and people of every colour, sexual orientation and gender no matter where they come from.

Ellison says Democrats must become regular fixtures in their communities, not just before elections.
