It doesn't matter what you say you believe. It's what you do that counts.

If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for,
at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them. — PAUL WELLSTONE

    Campaign Boot Camp

    Nobody builds smart, effective grassroots political organizations like the Illinois Democratic County Chairs' Association. One important key to our building efforts is our annual Candidate Boot Camp, put on in conjunction with the National Democratic Training Committee's Blue Bench Training Program.

    Registration is now open for this amazing three-day intensive training that will take place on May 17th - 19th at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield.

    This year's training will be better than ever. There will be three tracks:

    Track 1 - Candidate Training is for candidates and potential candidates who are involved with their county party.

    Track 2 - Staff Training is for anyone wishing to take on a staff role in a campaign, preferably for a local, countywide or County Board race.

    Track 3 - Local Party Training / County Chairs Training is for County Chairs. If there is room, applications from precinctpersons will be considered. 

    You must apply by April 26, 2019.

    Stop Voter Suppression Now!

    ballot box

    The McHenry County Clerk has decided to eliminate dozens of polling locations in 2018, presumably in an attempt to save money. The Clerk has not provided evidence that this plan will save any money at all, but it will definitely make it harder for thousands of citizens to vote. As many as 10 precincts are being crammed into one location. Parking will be at a premium at many of the consolidated locations, especially for elderly and disabled voters. The right to vote is the most important right we have as American citizens. We must not allow a bureaucrat to jeopardize our ability to participate in American democracy.
