Voting by mail:

You should have already received a vote-by-mail application. If you didn't, you can download an official mail-in application for DuPage by clicking here, and the rest of the state here. The county clerk must receive your application by October 29th.

 

but a better idea is to make your application online. Apply for a DuPage county ballot, here, Will county here, Lake county here, and Cook county here. DuPage will begin mailing out actual ballots the week of September 24th. When you receive your ballot, please complete it as soon as possible. Don't wait to act, the mail may be delayed. Take your ballot to the county clerk's office yourself if your are concerned. They are providing a drop box for that.

 

Note there are special rules for voting by mail if you are in the military, out of the country, in a hospital, or in a nursing home, so please read the official rules. To prevent fraud, get your information and ballot directly from the official websites linked to above.

Corona virus:

As you know, our country faces an unprecedented public health crisis from the global pandemic. As of this writing, it has infected more than 6 1/2  million Americans, and caused over 194,000 deaths at a rate of about one every 90 seconds. Older Americans are are particular risk, but if you can just keep yourself from getting infected for a few more months, new drugs and vaccines are on the way. .

 

It is important that you receive information from authoritative sources. Click here for the official Illinois state web site for the latest virus information.  Click here for the the CDC's Situation Summary and here for the World health Organization's information.

Presidential debates: 

Three Presidential debates have been scheduled. The first one will be held on September 29th in Cleveland, the second on October 15th in Miami, and the third one on October 22 in Nashville.

Although our focus is Dupage county, we realize there are important races going on elsewhere in Illinois and around the country. In addition to regaining the Presidency, we must hold the House and flip the Senate to undo the damage Donald Trump has done. Our new website provides the detail you need to make a difference not only in Illinois, but in the critical swing states such as Michigan and Wisconsin. Please check out  RedToBlue.net to find out about candidates in close races that you can help.

SHOULD YOU RUN FOR LOCAL OFFICE?
 

Much of the time we are focused on what is going on in Washington, or maybe Springfield. For sure what happens there is important. But the truth is the decisions being made in municipal, school districts, park district, library district, and fire district offices have a lot more impact on our daily lives. 

 

Did you know that Illinois has the greatest number of governmental units of any state in the union? That we have have some of the highest property taxes in the country as well? Neither Washington or Springfield set those rates, our local officials do. It is critical that we in DuPage County elect good people with progressive values, but also people who will be wise stewards of our money!
 

There are a lot of seats up in 2021 in our area! Take a look at this graphic: bit.ly/Seatsin2021


Considering running but don't know where to start? Our summer candidate training is in full force and there are still 6 more weeks to get involved! The next class will be on Saturday, September 12 at 8:30 am and will be focused on petitions. We will also have a Chicago election attorney speaking! Join us HERE.

Here is a full list of the positions that will be on the ballot in April 2021 in your area: 

 

Here are the descriptions of the roles for Lisle, most townships are similar bit.ly/LisleTwp-2021.

Want to know more? IDP's own Diane Hewitt is here to help. Diane is chair of the Lisle Township Democratic Organization and has made a number of videos show you how to become a candidate and conduct a successful campaign. What you will see are local people conducting actual campaigns for better government in DuPage county. No paid actors, this is the real deal. Although developed for 2019, these videos will be very useful for the 2021 election:
