It’s time to make your voice heard!

With the primary just a few months away, it’s time for our endorsement session!  We will be kicking off our endorsement May 1st with a candidate listening session at Sketchbook Brewing Company, 4901 Main St, 60077.  To allow members time to hear the candidates and do their own research, the endorsement process will have a 6-day online voting window with the ability to request a paper ballot as well.

Per our party’s by-laws, the DPOE Board has selected the following races to endorse in: Senate (uncontested); Congress (uncontested); Governor and Lt. Governor (uncontested); Attorney General (uncontested); Illinois Secretary of State (contested); Illinois Treasurer (uncontested); Illinois Comptroller (uncontested); State Senate, 9th District (uncontested); State Representative, 18th District (uncontested); State Representative, 17th District (uncontested); Cook County Commissioner, 13th District (uncontested); Democratic Committeeperson, Evanston (uncontested).  

Endorsements shall require the support of 2/3 of the members voting on any contested race. Uncontested races may be endorsed by unanimous acclamation. 

The quorum for an endorsement meeting shall be 15% of the membership total as of the first of the month preceding the month in which the endorsement meeting is held.

All current members will automatically be sent the link for online endorsement voting and paper ballot request, regardless of whether they can attend this kickoff event.
