Everyone Counts!

The 2020 Census counts every person living the United States and five U.S. territories until final deadline on September 30. Remember you can respond to  the census online!

The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S.Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. Each home should have received an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire, by phone, online, or by mail.

The census provides critical data for decisions made on schools, roads, hospitals, fire departments and many other recourses in our community.  It is very important for legislative  activities as it determines the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives and also on the state level.

Worcester County Democrats believe in a society where all people can lead lives of dignity.  We believe there should be no barriers to the opportunities of achieving a better life and that all Americans should have access to a sustainable livelihood, a sound education and a healthy environment.

Democrats in Worcester County are supported by four democratic organizations: Democratic Central Committee of Worcester County [DCCWC], Democratic Women’s Club [DWC], Democratic Club of Worcester County [DCWC], and Democratic Club of Ocean City/Berlin [DCOC/B]

These organizations are dedicated to providing information and support to registered democrats, unregistered voters, and democratic party candidates.  The four organizations are partners committed to electing democrats at all levels of government. Together they raise funds for democratic candidates, hold candidate forums, and host social events where democrats can meet other democrats, candidates and office holders.

We believe that, working together, Worcester County Democrats can make a difference and we urge you to get involved by volunteering, joining a democratic club, and attending informational meetings and social events.
