The following is a brief introduction to the ACDC.


Who we are:

“The Democratic Party of Virginia exists to facilitate and encourage the full participation of all Virginians in choosing their elected officials and controlling their political destiny.”  -  from the DPVA Plan (Democratic Party of Virginia)  Per the Virginia State Democratic Party Plan, each county and city within Virginia shall organize a Democratic Committee. 

The key objective of the ACDC is to recruit and nominate highly qualified candidates for elected and appointed offices.


What we do:

The ACDC participates in the democratic process through encouraging voting and voter registration, and through informing the public, specifically the local Democratic voters, on key issues related to elections and topics of public interest.  We coordinate with other local Democratic committees and communicate with local candidates to support their campaigns.


When we meet:

Regular meetings of the ACDC are held the 1st Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Smith West Conference Room at the Augusta County Government Center.   Note: After hours enter the building thru the west doors and turn right after entering the building.  The Smith West Conference Room will come up on your left.  Periodically a separate SAW Joint meeting is held with a business meeting of the ACDC immediately following the joint meeting and is open to all.  Please check Facebook and our Website for specific meeting notices.

  • Attend the monthly meetings

  • Contribute to the ACDC by paying voluntary annual dues (see website)
