Early voting locations are open now!

Early voting for the March 18 primary begins on Monday, March 3. Polling locations are located throughout the county, as listed on the County Clerk's website here: https://www.co.mchenry.il.us/home/showdocument?id=26778

Please make sure you vote in this primary to show your support for our Democratic candidates, from Senator Dick Durbin and Governor Pat Quinn, to our Congressional, state and local candidates. We are committed to building a vibrant and powerful voice for working families and American values, but we can't do it without your help.

Remember, it's Republicans who keep trying to chip away at your right to vote with shady voter ID laws and restriction of early voting. Don't think it couldn't happen here. That's why it's so important for you to vote early, and VOTE DEMOCRATIC.

  • I have received a couple of calls this morning from folks taking advantage of early voting who were conflicted about what ballot to pull. You see, here in McHenry County, we have so little choice that many cross party lines and pull a Republican ballot in order to have a say between the lesser of two evils.
    This practice has to stop. If we want choice, we need to start identifying ourselves to each other as Democrats and grow our base. The first step is to go vote in the primary and pull a Democratic ballot. There are more of us than you think, but if we continue to hide we will continue to not attract and grow candidates that really reflect our values. Be part of the change!
