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:
Consider 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. Get in touch with us today if you’re considering a run for a local seat.
Volunteer 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. If you are ready to help Turn Calvert Blue, get in touch with us right away!
Donate. We understand that not everyone has time to contribute to a campaign, cause, or office. So if you want to help but can’t find the time, consider donating today.
After 2018 elections:
There is more to government than just elected office. The Board of County Commissioners relies on the input from citizen volunteer advisors to make decisions. If you want to influence local county government, but don't want to run for office, this is an excellent way to ensure our county reflects your values. Volunteer for a commission or board today!
