Formerly known as the Howard County Young Republicans, the Howard County YRs are an independent, community-based organization that seeks to engage and mobilize for those who share our values and to support Republicans running for local, state, or federal office.
With major political challenges facing Howard County residents, there is an increasing need to inform and mobilize voters. Issues like with school redistricting, pay-to-play politics, and rising taxes have major impacts on younger residents. For several years, the Howard County YRs have been at the forefront of reversing Democratic gains and providing logistical/strategic support for Republicans running for office.
We now seek your support to boost current efforts to actively organize community forums, engage new voters, and support campaigns for office across our great county.
