Did you know that 30% of the 614,752 registered voters in DuPage county didn't vote in the 2016 presidential election? That more than twice that many didn't vote in the 2016 primary election? Did it matter? Ask the 14th Congressional District candidate who lost DuPage by three votes!
The stakes couldn't have be higher, so Coalition for a Better Illinois 6th (CBIL) conducted a get-out-the-vote drive. They sent out 42,000 postcards urging voters to go to the polls. We all pitched in and another 150,000 postcards went out for the general election. Click here to learn more about more CBIL projects. Getting as many people to the polls as possible was critical. This was the year that every vote counted.
DuPage voters were fed up with Donald Trump's enablers. We wanted our representatives to stand up for us, not special interests. November 6, 2018 we elected new people to our County Board, new representatives in Springfield, a new Governor, and flipped control of Congress. Let's keep the momentum going!

The author of How the Right Lost Its Mind was particularly scornful of politicians who abandon their principles and enable a President who seems at odds with everything the Party of Lincoln once stood for.
