The 2020 Election is Almost Here: We Must Keep the Blue Wave Going

In 2018, Democratic candidates were elected all over Lake County. By winning five new seats, we flipped the county board to blue. And our new commissioners are already keeping their promises to promote more transparency and accountability.

All of Lake County is now represented by Democrats in Congress: Brad Schneider, Sean Casten and Lauren Underwood. We also picked up two state representative positions and all of our Democratic elected officials were re-elected. We also picked up three county-wide offices, including Sheriff, County Clerk and County Treasurer. Congratulations to all of our winners! Click here to meet our Democratic elected officials.

You can help us do even better. In 2020, re-electing our Congresspeople will be vital to protect our rights and prevent a Republican resurgence. Despite the success of the Blue Wave, we must redouble our efforts to elect more Democrats. Medicare, Social Security, voting rights, women’s rights, minority rights, public education, and our most vulnerable citizens are under attack. Thoughts and prayers are no longer enough: we need real gun reform. 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 the losers under Republican control. Progressive values are under attack. But you can help us fight back.

The Lake County Democratic Party works towards these goals by attracting and training good Democratic candidates, holding educational 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.

Column: Mail-in ballots in plague year make sense except to GOP
The crew at the Lake County Clerk's Office must be an efficient bunch. I got an application to vote by mail in the Nov. 3 election and didn't even have to request one. In a letter accompanying the mail-in ballot application dated Aug. 1, County Clerk Robin O'Connor said because of the COVID-19 pandemic, "voters are encouraged to cast a ballot prior to Election Day … either by mail or during early voting."
