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.

Huntley Area Afternoon Happy Hour

Huntley Area Democrats

Afternoon Zoom Happy Hour with the
Sun City Area Democrats

(Includes McHenry County District 5 & 6 and Rutland & Hampshire Townships in Kane County) 

Consolidated Municipal Elections will be held April 6th less than a month away.  These candidates will make decisions that affect our every day lives. Generally very few come out to vote for these seemingly minor positions. Their leadership entails all different aspects of our lives. Come and meet a few who have stepped up and talk with other Sun City Democrats about this forgotten election. 

Of course there will be at least a few minutes to discuss Federal and State politics.

We'll try to point out local events and ways you can be a part of them and make a difference. 

Let's keep looking for those Democrats hiding right in front of our eyes or people who may have switched over to our way of thinking!
