Important: Review Candidate Filing Dates

LCDP is committed to working with candidates and their teams to elect Democrats across the county.  Our volunteers will coordinate with each campaign’s team to manage and participate in party canvassing efforts, phone banking, and direct mail campaigns on behalf of all endorsed candidates. Our monthly meetings are designed to familiarize ourselves with all candidates to facilitate intra-campaign coordination and provide information on upcoming events which can provide valuable networking opportunities. Lancaster County Democratic Party does not donate to Democratic candidates. The party provides resources to Democratic candidates.
