Howard County Fair 2022

Attention Howard County Democrats,

The Howard County Democratic Central Committee (HCDCC) is seeking volunteers to sign up and staff the Democratic Booth at the Howard County Fair, which will be held next week August 6-13 from 10am to 10pm at the Howard County Fairgrounds. This is a great opportunity for both elected officials and community members to interact with Howard County citizens, families and visitors stopping by our booth. Volunteers are needed to help pass out literature, to inform booth visitors about Democrats running for office in their area, and handing out Democratic swag.

Please click HERE TO VOLUNTEER at the booth and walk in the parade!

We Look forward to seeing you all at the Fair!

New Districts will be in Effect in 2022

In 2022, elections for local and state offices and for Congressional seats will be based on new boundaries. These boundaries were adopted through the Maryland constitutionally-mandated redistricting process that followed the release of the 2020 Census data. Some districts have shifted to account for population changes; others have been re-numbered. Select a district to view maps showing the previous or current boundaries.

Meet Your Democratic Candidates
