The Lake County Democrats work to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. We help recruit, train, and support candidates. We hold events and trainings to energize volunteers and precinct committeepersons that make them more effective in their outreach. Through working with township chairs, Lake Dems builds relationships at the grassroots level that help turn out the vote for Democratic candidates and strengthen connections between elected officials and the Lake County community.
“I served for a time as the only Democratic legislator from Lake County in the Illinois House or Senate. We’ve worked hard to change Lake County from deep Republican red to Democratic blue. People are understanding more and more that Democrats reflect Lake County values…and the Republican Party simply doesn’t. Lake County Democrats are developing a strong infrastructure to make the phone calls, canvass the neighborhoods, raise the money, train the candidates, do the mailings, and get out the vote. These things are crucial to our mission of making sure people support our candidates and elected officials.
There’s a lot to do, and we’re excited to continue the hard but critical work of electing Democrats in Lake County.
