Rep Waters will be at our picnic on July 23, 2017. Go to our event page to learn about the picnic or buy tickets below.

The Strafford County Democrats began when a group of grassroots Democratic activists aged 17 to 70 gathered to promote a Pro-Democratic message during a November election. In the following years, the Strafford County Democratic Committee (SCDC) was officially formed with the purpose of improving the quality of life, happiness, and well-being of all people through the democratic process of government.

We work to preserve the true progressive ideals of the Democratic Party through outreach, education, voter registration efforts, and local candidate support. We serve every town in Strafford County: Dover, Durham, Lee, Madbury, Barrington, Rollinsford, Rochester, Farmington, Milton, Middleton, New Durham, Somersworth, and Strafford.

This is an opportunity to positively affect legislation in New Hampshire as you help our representatives prepare for new bills.
