Don’t Miss Out!

Democratic activists and progressive voters are leaving nothing to chance in the 2018 Election Cycle. Preparations started immediately following the 2016 General Election. We are now mobilizing to resist Donald Trump and Bruce Rauner. We are evaluating and retooling our message. We are training, organizing and building our Democratic Party infrastructure.

Even with everything we’ve done since last November, we are not where we need to be yet. Every one of us will need to do more if we want to stop the extreme agenda of the Republican Party. Now, more than ever, the Democratic Party needs you. We need more elected Precinct Committeemen and Committeewomen.

Precinct Committeeperson is one the most position in the grassroots movement in the Democratic Party and it is the most worthwhile positions you will ever hold.

  • You will have access to free training to help teach you to mobilize your local Democratic voters.
  • Your Precincts Democratic voters rely on you for information about our candidates and the issues.
  • Many recent statewide and local elections have been decided by a single vote per precinct and less.
  • By serving as a Precinct Committeemen you insure that your views and those of your neighborhood are represented.

We invite you to join the nearly 7,000 other Precinct Committeemen in our effort! Virtually every county in our state needs at least one more Precinct Committeeperson and in most cases, they can use more. You can visit to find more information on becoming a Precinct Committeeperson or joining one of the many activist groups (like Indivisible or Action for a Better Tomorrow).

We need good candidates for Precinct Committeeperson to step forward. The time for circulating petitions to have your name appear for the 2018 primary election ballot begins on September 5th. Please get involved and run for this important LOCAL office. The Democratic Party needs you.
