Our Democracy Is Strongest When Everyone Participates


The only way to ensure The United States of America is and remains “a government of the people, by the people, and for the people” is for citizens to be informed about who and what is on the ballot before showing up to vote.

Sample Ballots

Make sure you know about ALL the issues that will be on your ballot by looking at the ballot and doing your research BEFORE you visit your polling place. DuPage County generally does a great job of making sure sample ballots are available for all polling places before Early Voting starts.

“If the people fail to vote, a government will be developed which is not their government… The whole system of American Government rests on the ballot box. Unless citizens perform their duties there, such a system of government is doomed to failure.”

Calvin Coolidge

Every election is determined by the people who show up.

Larry J. Sabato

“Not voting is not a protest. It is a surrender.”

Keith Ellison
