Anne Arundel Democrats
The AACDCC is your local Democratic Party in Anne Arundel County. We are comprised of 13 elected members. Every four years, in the mid-term (non-presidential) election you'll see at the very bottom of your ballot the names of those individuals who are running for the Democratic Central Committee. That's how we are elected - by you, the voters.
We come from every corner of Anne Arundel County. Each legislative district in the county has 4 elected members, except for Districts 21 and 12B, which is only a small part of AA County and therefore only has 2 members on our committee per district. Districts 30, 31, 32, and 33 each have 4 members.
The committee serves several purposes. To maintain and grow the Democratic Party in our county by engaging the community and reaching out to voters. To elect Democrats at all levels of government. To represent the principals that guide the Democratic Party here at home, in Anne Arundel County. The members of the committee also hold the responsibility of nominating a replacement when an elected Democrat in the State Legislature vacates office. In such an event, the Committee will accept applications from the public and will interview the candidates. The Committee will vote on which candidate will be forwarded to the Governor for appointment to fill the remainder of the term of office.
We meet regularly on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30 pm. We currently meet at the Waugh Chapel Community Center.
