    Join us for our 2nd Annual McHenry County Democrats Picnic and Blood Drive 

    This is the exciting must-attend kick-off to our Get-Out-The-Vote efforts! We will have material available to PCs and volunteers for distribution about Democratic candidates and voting. Local candidates will be stopping by before they win in November. Also joining us will be some statewide candidates, including Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza!

    Please bring the whole family and a dish to pass. Come ready to socialize and have fun in Woodstock's beautiful Emricson Park before we hit the streets to GOTV. Our picnic will be held in the shaded Main Pavilion at the south end of the park, next to the playground. 

    We are partnering with Heartland Blood Centers to donate blood on site in their air-conditioned bus. The blood we give saves lives right here in McHenry County.

    Donations to cover costs are welcome, but not required.

    We are looking for volunteers to:

    • Bring a dish to pass
    • Bring coolers
    • Face Paint
    • Set-up and take-down
    • Man the BBQ

    If you can help please email fundraising@mchenrydems.org

  • signed Stop Voter Suppression Now 2018-03-19 18:19:21 -0500
    My 18 year old son registered to vote on Feb 15th at the Woodstock DMV, and still didn’t have his card the day before the election. We took his voter registration receipt with to vote today directly at the Clerk’s office, and his registration wasn’t in the system at all. They decided to register him on the spot so that he could vote without having to take a provisional ballot. The election judge struggled for over 5 minutes because the system kept telling him that my son’s street address wasn’t valid, even though it’s the same street address on my own voter ID card (on a 118 year old house!). The judge finally forced it to accept the precinct number, and somehow got his registration to work and my son was able to vote. The gentleman cautioned us, though, that my son may have trouble voting in the future, and to come back to the Clerk’s office if he doesn’t receive his new voter registration card in 30 days!!

    Stop Voter Suppression Now!

    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.

    Petition

    To: Mary McClellan, McHenry County Clerk

    The right to vote is the most important right we have as American citizens. The current plan to eliminate a large portion of the polling places in McHenry County is a threat to our democracy. We believe that cramming up to 10 precincts into one polling location, and moving many precincts to unfamiliar and inconvenient venues, will result in the disenfranchisement of thousands of McHenry County citizens, especially the elderly and disabled who will be the most inconvenienced by these drastic changes. Please cancel or delay this ill-advised and untested plan.
