What is the Central Committee?
The State Central Committee is the grass roots backbone of the Maryland Democratic party. Composed of activists and community leaders, it provides a core of enthusiastic workers and organizers.
The State Central Committee is constituted under Maryland’s Election Law to govern the party. Each county and Baltimore City has its own central committee to manage party affairs in its jurisdiction.
Central Committee members are elected at primary elections every four years. Any registered Democrat can run for a seat on his or her county’s central committee.
To advance the party’s principles and help elect Democrats to public office, committee members register and assist voters, staff events, work at polls and phone banks, raise funds and resources, and support the party organization. In addition, the committee recommends appointments to the governor for the Baltimore County Board of Elections and helps to fill vacancies in certain elected offices.
Volunteers are always needed and welcome. You can find out more about the committee’s activities on this website and on our Facebook page.
