Welcome to our webpage.

If you are a Democrat and are feeling like you can’t find your “people," we invite you to come and meet us. Many people when they first come to Washington County complain that they feel alone, like a blue dot in a red sea. If you are looking for like-minded people who are interested in making their city, county, and state a better place to live, I think you have found who you are looking for. Please take a look at this site and our Facebook page and join us for an event or meeting. Hope to see you there.

The United Democrats of Washington County (UDWC) was formed in 2015 as an activist, inclusive grassroots organization to revitalize local Democrats and take political action on the local, state and national levels. We welcome the participation of all registered Washington County Democrats. We work alongside the Washington County Democratic Central Committee, the official local arm of the Democratic party whose members are elected in the midterms.

Scam Election Call Alert

The Washington County Board of Elections is warning residents about scam election calls that aim to deceive and manipulate voters. Robocalls impersonating political campaigns or candidates are becoming increasingly sophisticated, with some using artificial intelligence to mimic well-known voices. 

The Maryland Office of the Attorney General is pursuing legal action against perpetrators. Recent cases include a lawsuit against a company accused of sending scam election robocalls mimicking prominent political figures to discourage voter turnout.

If you receive a suspicious election call, please report it to 410-528-8662 with details such as the date, time, caller ID information, and the nature of the call.
