Grassroots Action

“Action is the antidote to despair,” said Joan Baez. Our local party has a long tradition of voicing our opposition to injustice, corruption and intolerance. In our darkest moments, when all seems lost, we still have the First Amendment.

Step One: Push to the Primary Campaign

Before we can begin to deliver 5,000 doorhangars, we must hook rubber bands on each. These rubber bands will keep the card attached to the door knob.  It's not hard and of course it is more fun with good food and drink and friends.  

Mary McClellan, our county clerk, has moved 20 voting locations in District 2 and 10 in District 3. These are residential areas and contain many democratic voters.  Legally she can do this.  McHenry County Democrats are determined to get the vote out for the primary and the midterms despite her trying to suppress it.  Voters need to know there is a problem.  We're hoping 5,000 doorhangars will make a strong statement.  

We will be working on attaching rubber bands at Pablo's while enjoying the fare. Come and join us.  Help as you can.  Be a part of the "blue wave".  It happened in Virginia, Alabama and just a few days ago Kentucky flipped a very republican state seat.  We can flip the congressional 6th and the 14th.  

BE A PART OF THE WAVE!  Be a part of history. If you can volunteer to attach doorhangars even for an hour or two, please let John Labaj know. (815-404-9136) or

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 Let’s stop this type of voter suppression in its tracks!
