The Hunterdon County Democratic Committee (“HCDC”) is the county level of the Democratic Party. The HCDC is responsible for assisting in all phases of party work at the municipal and county levels; registering new democratic voters; participating in planning and the running of campaigns; working to build a larger Democratic vote in their Hunterdon County; and serving as an advocate and representative of the residents of their district regarding neighborhood or district issues.
We take an active role in recruiting democratic candidates that stand for the middle class and working families, and understand the importance of sound fiscal management.
What is the County Committe
Hunterdon County is divided into 26 municipalities, each of which has its own polling location. Each district is represented by one man and one women that are elected to serve on the County Committee. They are party officials, and are commonly referred to as “County Committee members.”
County Committee members are elected every two years by voters at the Primary Election in June (each even-numbered year). County Committee members’ official function is to elect the municipal and county officers of the County Committee. The municipals chairs are elected six days after the Primary Election, and the county officers are elected the following day.
Members of the County Committee
As the elected members of the Democratic County Committee, they are responsible for making the New Jersey Democratic Party stronger and more responsive to the needs of our communities. They are the front lines of our political
process, and their efforts on behalf of our candidates
are crucial to consistent electoral victory.
