What am I running for?

•    An at large (county-wide) seat on the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee (MCDCC).

•   In the June 2018 Democratic Primary election, you can vote for up to four men and four women for at-large seats on the Committee.

•   You can also vote for two members, one male and one female, from your legislative district.

 

What is the Montgomery County Democratic Central Committee?

•    The Committee is the governing body of the Democratic Party in our county.

•    It is the party’s infrastructure - it organizes voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaigns to mobilize and empower voters and sets official Democratic policy.

•    It should serve as the local link between you and the party.

 

Why should you care?

•    There has never been a more important time to get involved locally and elect Democrats.

•    The Committee helps the 378,000 registered Democrats (out of a total of 644,000 registered voters) in the county know the issues, the candidates, and how to get them elected.

•    Voter turn-out in Montgomery County, the largest county in Maryland, can ensure that we elect a Democratic governor in November 2018.
