Lake County Democrats Welcome You
Perhaps at no time in our recent history is there more at stake than now. Medicare, Social Security and our most vulnerable citizens are under attack. The middle class is under attack. Progressive values are under attack. But you can help us fight back.
The 2014 election will bring a roster of outstanding Democratic candidates for office at the local and national level. Each one is dedicated to upholding the values which provide strength for our community, state and nation. And each candidate is committed to public service and brings a wealth of insight and experience.
The Democratic Party stands for people-oriented public policy... jobs, fiscal discipline, sensible foreign policy, national security, education, affordable health care, environmental protection, international cooperation and the participation of the public towards the goal of this country achieving its ultimate best.
The Lake County Democratic Party works towards these goals by helping democratic candidates, arranging events, assisting voters, providing information about issues and much more.
We need your help to transform this county and this country into one where the needs of its people come first. Will you help?

Until March 13, registered voters can apply to receive an absentee ballot from their county offices. The ballots can be filled out and mailed back or returned in person, giving voters a chance to start making their picks well before primary Election Day and even two weeks ahead of the start of early voting on March 3.
