New Precincts for Addison Township

UPDATE: The DuPage County Board voted down the proposed new precinct maps that
were created for all nine DuPage Townships by the DuPage County Clerk’s Office at
an Emergency Meeting called for Friday, January 14th. For more information, please follow the link to this article. Thank you.

The DuPage County Board of Elections has issued the new Precinct Maps for all nine townships in DuPage County. As a result, the number of defined precincts in Addison Township has dropped to 54 voter territories.

This represents a significant change in the number of voting districts in Addison Township. Since there are fewer precincts within the township, the physical size of each precinct is larger than in previous years.

What this means for voters: Due to new precinct boundaries, a voter may have a new polling place.

What this means for you: New precincts will need a representative from the neighborhood.

Every precinct holds an election for both a Democratic and a Republican ‘Precinct Committeeperson’ commonly referred to as a PC. A Precinct Committeeperson (PC) is the neighborhood representative of the Democratic Party in Addison Township. PCs are critical to ensuring strong, local support for Democratic candidates, issues, and initiatives. Any registered Democrat is eligible to be a PC in their home precinct!

ATDO will be scheduling meetings over the next few weeks for all members to understand which Precincts they are assigned to and to determine who is interested in running to be an ‘Elected PC’.

Interested in representing your neighborhood? Good for you!

For more information on becoming a PC, contact ATDO leadership via the Become a PC page.
