We Need Your Help Now More Than Ever

It’s official: There has never been more at stake for the future of our country than right now. Medicare, Social Security, voting rights, women’s rights, minority rights, public education, and our most vulnerable citizens are under attack. Income inequality, already a huge problem, is getting worse by the day. Both nationally and at the state and local level, the middle class and working people are under attack. Progressive values are under attack. But you can help us fight back.

In 2016, Democratic candidates in Lake County did very well. All of our Democratic elected officials were re-elected, we gained a U.S. Senator and a Congressman. We also picked up a county-wide office and Hillary kicked butt. You can help us do even better next time.

We are already planning for 2018, when winning Congressional elections will be vital to protect our rights from Donald Trump and the Republicans in Washington. And we’ll be working for a governor candidate to finally remove Illinois from the clutches of another uncaring billionaire.

The Lake County Democratic Party works towards these goals by attracting and training good Democratic candidates, holding events, recruiting precinct committeemen to get out the Democratic vote, providing information about issues and much more.

We need your help to transform this county and this country into one where the vital needs of people come first. Will you help? Click here to volunteer.

Make sure your vote counts — head to a polling place
Dozens of local races in Lake County have been won or lost over the years by handfuls of ballots cast. Voters took the time to show their support at the polls for candidates which reflected their ethical leanings. We spend a lot of taxpayer money in this county and state to ensure the apparatus used at the polls is kept safe and sound from vote fraudsters and prying Russian eyes. Make sure you take advantage by voting on Election Day and knowing in the end your vote will count.
