The Committee is an elected board under the authority of the Maryland Democratic State Central Committee and, thus, the Maryland Constitution. The committee's formal roles are to fill vacancies of certain offices due to death or resignation of elected officials and to fill vacancies when no Democratic candidate has filed for nomination. The committee also makes recommendations to the Governor to fill openings on the St. Mary's County Board of Elections and, at times, recommendations for other state and county boards.

In addition, Committee members are the grassroots-level volunteers of the Maryland Democratic Party in the county. They work to recruit Democratic candidates and ensure the election of Democrats to public office, while encouraging the participation of activists, volunteers, and financial contributors. They organize an ongoing presence at the local level by fundraising, staffing booths/events, organizing precincts, participating in canvassing operations, distributing political literature, performing voter registration, phone banking, and promoting the Democratic party and candidates on websites and social media.

The Committee meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 via Zoom.
