Welcome to the Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club website
Our club provides an opportunity for citizens to connect with one another, learn about political issues and Democratic values, and help elect Democrats to public office. We meet monthly to hear speakers on issues that affect our community, socialize, and plan activities to support Democratic Candidates.

Our last meeting before the primary will include a club endorsement process for the Superior Court Judge, Office 22 race. The club will also hear informational presentations for both sides of Proposition P. We will also go over the entire ballot, explaining each proposition and any other obscure ballot minutiae so bring your ballots/pamphlets!

Our February 3 Welcome Back Party
The Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club hosted a Welcome Back party, firing us up for the upcoming election year. Multiple candidates spoke, including five judicial candidates, our endorsed City Council District 5 candidate, and five candidates for the County Democratic Party Central Committee for AD 77. We endorsed three of the judicial candidates by acclamation since they are running unopposed by any other Democrat in their races.
Delicious food was on hand, including multiple pies and cupcakes for dessert. And finally, Terry Norwood led us in a rousing game of “Name That Candidate (Or Past President)”. Ten clues were available and each team had to decide how many clues to be given (the fewer clues, the more points). Lots of fun, and we also learned some interesting facts about our candidates (and past presidents)!
