Record Number of Baldwin County Democrats Qualified for June 5th Primary!

For the first time since 2007, Baldwin County residents appeared on the ballot as Democratic candidates for the Alabama State Legislature, Baldwin County Commission and Board of Education.

When Baldwin County citizens went to the polls on June 5th, they had more reason than ever to request a Democratic Primary ballot. That is because nine Baldwin residents qualified to run as Democrats for county-level or state legislative positions, races in which choosing a local Democratic Party candidate has not been an option in more than a decade. The last Baldwin resident to compete as a Democrat for county or state legislative office was A.J. Cooper who ran for the Alabama State Senate in 2007.

We’re very pleased to see more concerned Baldwin residents stepping up to run as Democrats. Our core commitment to providing equal protection and equal opportunity for every citizen is a principle that is resonating more and more with the public.

Here are your Baldwin County Democrats vying for the opportunity to represent you in 2018.
