Welcome to the Bedford Democratic Committee webpage.

We are a grassroots organization, whose objective is to support and elect Democratic candidates in our area and throughout the state. Educating ourselves and the public about important issues of the day is also a part of our goals. With your help, we can make Bedford a better place to live and raise our families.

Please take the time to volunteer. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

Our committee meets on the fourth Monday of each month. During this 2014 election season, our meetings will be held at Democratic Campaign Headquarters at 133 W. Main St., Bedford VA 24523. Our meetings begin at 7:00 PM and usually last about an hour and a half with refreshments.

If you have questions, feel free to contact our Chair Ann Duncan at 540-816-0828 or by submitting an email.

New Voter ID Laws take effect July 1, 2014

Barbara Gunter, General Registrar for Bedford County, guest speaker at our July meeting, explained the new Voter ID regulations that took effect on July 1. The old pieces of identification have been replaced with the requirement that a photo ID must now be presented when you vote. The IDs may be a valid VA driver license or DMV issued ID card, any other Government issued photo ID, a student photo ID from a Virginia university or college, a USA passport, a photo ID from your employer, or a new Voter Photo ID Card. This Voter Card may be obtained free of charge from the Registrar's office, 122 E. Main St., Bedford. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and the phone number is 540-586-7649.  State Voter Info
