DEMOCRATIC PARTY

LOCAL CENTRAL COMMITTEES

Local central committee members of the Maryland Democratic Party are elected in gubernatorial election years at the primary election held in June. The last primary was June 26, 2018. Prior to 2014, the primary election was held in September.

Listed below are those who were elected in June 2018 as members of the local central committees. They assumed office in August 2018.

After election by the voters, some local central committee members are unable to serve. When circumstances warrant it, the State central committee then appoints new members to replace those who have resigned, moved, or died. In the text below, such new members bear asterisks after their names.
