Phone Banking

CCDCC Phone Banking

The Calvert Democratic Club is reaching out to registered Democrats who voted in 2016 but not in 2014 to see what issues matter to them and encourage them to come out for this year's mid-term elections. If you've never made calls before, don't be afraid to give it a try. We know it can seem intimidating, but it's also rewarding to talk to fellow Democrats who are fired up about what's going on locally and nationally. Several volunteers have said it was easier than they thought and that any nervousness faded away quickly. And remember that you won't be making calls alone, and that someone will be there to walk you through any issues. A new volunteer can get trained on the system and ready to make calls in about 10 minutes. There are a lot of Democrats who didn't vote in 2014 that we need to get in touch with, so even if you can only sign up for one session a month, or can only make it for an hour, please consider pitching in.


The Club will be hosting two sessions a week - Sundays from 12-2pm and Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm at Democratic Headquarters in Prince Frederick. You can sign up for this session here.

If you have any questions about phone banking, please email

March for Our Lives

CCDCC March for our Lives

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. For more information about the March and its sponsors, click here.

A Rally bus has been booked for March For Our Lives from Dunkirk. A minimum of 25 seats must be purchased for the bus to confirm the Rally Point. If there aren't enough riders the bus will be canceled 5-7 days before the event. Tickets are steep at $45, but the convenience of traveling with like-minded people might offset that a bit. Click on the link to book your seat.

The youth of America are standing up on March 24th, spearheading the movement to finally bring common sense to gun safety, and you can help them! An anonymous donor contributed sufficient monies to allow for 3 youth to attend the Rally on March 24 and take the Rally bus from Dunkirk. We offer our grateful thanks to that donor, and so do the students being supported.

If you would like to so donate, you may make a contribution of $55 to the CCDWC by Tuesday, March 13th. Each $55 donation allows another student the opportunity to participate in this tremendous movement. You can drop a check off at the LaFayette Law Office at 22 Duke St. in Prince Frederick. The office has a mail slot in the door if anyone wish to drop a check over the week-end. Or, you can deliver a check to our Treasurer, Ms. Margaret Phipps (

March to Fix the Fund



Since 2012, $1.7 billion has gone into the Education Trust Fund from casino revenues, but it hasn’t increased funding for schools and students as intended. Instead, the same amount of money that was already going to education was redirected to other areas of the budget. That means all of the additional gambling revenues have resulted in no change to the education budget.

We want the General Assembly to pass the Fix the Fund Act to make sure that money goes where it was intended – to increase school funding. This would result in an additional $500 million in school funding annually, a significant step toward closing the $3 billion gap.

Join the March to Fix the Fund on March 19th. A boxed dinner will be provided, as well as busses departing from Huntingtown High School at 4:45pm, sharp. Sign up here by March 12th to ride the Calvert bus and pick your food option.

Get Ready for 2018

The election cycle this year is extremely important and very exciting. Calvert County has some great candidates for local office already filed and running, and we’re still looking for more. Democrats in Calvert County are in a position to retrieve the governorship, further solidify democratic control of the state legislature, and Turn Calvert Blue! But we need your help. Here’s how you can be part of the movement:

CCDCCConsider running for office. There are many local-level offices that need democrats to file their candidacy. The CCDCC has several tools for first-time candidates to help them get their campaigns off the ground. Also, the state Democratic Party and many other organizations do as well. Get in touch with us today if you’re considering a run for a local seat.

CCDCCVolunteer on a campaign. Want to Turn Calvert Blue, but can’t run for office yourself? There are lots of great candidates already running who need support and resources. Get in touch with us, or contact them directly to find out how you can help.

Help get out the vote! There are lots of Democrats in Calvert County, but we need them to get to the polls! Consider volunteering as a precinct captain, or precinct volunteer to connect with your neighbors and get them to turn out to the polls. We’ll be setting up a poll-driver network shortly, so watch for information on how you can volunteer to be a driver on Election Day.

With the 2018 elections fast approaching the Central Committee is in need of volunteers to turn out the vote in Calvert County! While the CCDCC always operates with a volunteer force managing the Headquarters, running food drives, and performing various community outreach programs, election years present a great many more tasks. We need volunteers to staff information booths at community events and at polls on election days. With over 35 thousand registered Democratic or unaffiliated voters to get in touch with in the next year, the Calvert Democrats need people to begin phone-banking and door-knocking right away. If we are going to turn out a democratic election in Calvert County in 2018, we need to start canvassing now. If you can spare a few hours a week to this, please get in touch with us right away.
