COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation and the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) will provide updates as they become available.

Primary Election

June 2, 2020

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, voting for the Primary Election will be via mail with election day ballot drop off locations.

After careful consideration of information provided by the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) and the staff of the local boards of elections, The State Board of Elections (SBE) determined that providing in-person voting for this election introduces more risk to voters and election judges than SBE is willing to accept.

All registered and eligible voters will automatically receive a ballot by for this election.  You should receive the ballot by mid May.

  • All ballots include a return envelope with prepaid postage.
  • Voted ballots must be postmarked before Tuesday, June 2, 2020.
  • If you are unable to vote by mail, there will be an in-person vote center at two  sites in Worcester County on June 2: Berlin Intermediate School and Worcester County Board of Elections in Snow Hill.
  • If you prefer to drop off you ballot, you can do so at the Worcester County Board of Elections in Snow Hill from Thursday, May 21 through Tuesday, June 2.
  • YOU MUST SIGN THE OATH ON THE BACK OF THE BALLOT ENVELOPE! If you do not sign it, your vote will not count.

Everyone Counts!

The 2020 Census counts every person living the United States and five U.S. territories.

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.
