Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

Data Management Team Meeting

Join us for data entry and data syncing activities - new volunteers are welcome!

RSVP if you are able to come so that we can get your logins to the two systems established in time for your arrival.  Bring a laptop if you have one. The first session is usually slow going as we complete setup in both systems and get you acclimated to the tasks.

Note: For those of you willing to work on data entry remotely, we'll need to work together for a few sessions and then we can pursue remote assistance.

District Two - Call for Volunteers!

McHenry County Clerk Mary McClellan has changed 15 Polling Location in District 2. We need volunteers to canvass the week of February 25th to place doorhangers in the affected Precincts. The doorhangers inform voters to know the location of their polling site and to consider voting by mail or early voting. There is no door knocking, just a delivery to inform voters of the Clerk’s action. Volunteers can choose any time during the week to canvass a Precinct. To obtain materials and assignments contact district2mchenrydems.org. Let’s stop this type of voter suppression in its tracks!
