The 2021 Endorsement Process and Intake Form

The 2021 Endorsements Committee of the Washington County Democrats invites all candidates seeking endorsement in advance of the May 18th election to read and respond to the following:

The primary purpose of the Washington County Democratic Central Committee (WCDCC) is to elect Democratic candidates to both partisan and nonpartisan political positions. To achieve this goal the WCDCC actively endorses qualified Democrats, and can often provide resources to help them succeed in their campaigns for office. If elected, you will be expected to attend some Democratic Party events and support Washington County Democratic values.

Any Washington County Democrat registered as a Democrat for more than 6 months prior to their election may apply for this assistance after officially filing with Washington County, or their city, for that position. By completing the following questionnaire, having an interview with the endorsement committee, and obtaining the endorsement of the WCDCC at their monthly meeting, you will complete your endorsement process.

Please be advised that as a county party, we would also expect the endorsed candidate to participate in and contribute their resulting political knowledge with WCDCC.

The Endorsements Committee of the Washington County Democrats invites all candidates seeking endorsement in advance of the May 18th election to make the committee aware of your intention, and if possible, submit your completed questionnaire to the committee no later than 5pm on March 18. Early filing and endorsement will deliver maximum campaign benefits to the early bird candidate, as there are multiple subsequent key deadlines. If you miss the February 13 early bird cutoff, please submit your questionnaire as soon as possible.

Candidate filing for the May 18, 2021 election begins Feb. 6 and ends March 18.
