Make Your Voting Plan
Yes for Fairness
Vote Blue
Finish your Ballot (top to bottom)
VOTE EARLY
MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR - SEPTEMBER EDITION
By Kim Savage, DGTDO Chair
Do you have a voting plan? Studies show that people who have a voting plan are more likely to vote than those who do not think about it in advance. Make sure everyone in your household and in your “bubble” has a voting plan and make sure they vote!

We all know that this is the most important election of our lifetime. Just as important as voting is making sure you finish your ballot! Finishing your ballot means voting it from top to bottom, starting with the Fair Tax Amendment all the way down to the Circuit Court Judges. The Trump voters will vote for EVERY Republican on the ballot without question. However, we know that Democrats are likely to vote only for the candidates they know. Seriously, I hope everyone reading this understands that the DuPage Republicans have endorsed Trump. The DuPage GOP is Trump, so skipping Democratic candidates means that you will be voting for Trump supporting Republicans. Let’s keep Trump-supporting Republicans out of office by voting for all candidates up and down the ballot.

If you are still not sure about some candidates or issues, we have loaded up our website with tons of information. The Democratic Party of DuPage County also has a boatload of information, plus, they have assisted the Democrats running for office county-wide and for County Board to make videos. Watch the videos. Share them with your family and friends. Then, share them again. Don’t forget to vote for EVERY Democrat on your ballot! Remember, the Republicans running for these offices have endorsed Donald Trump for President (need I say more?).

Speaking of the Republicans, they still control the DuPage County Board and the Forest Preserve District. If you have been reading my messages, you know we can flip these bodies in this election. If you weren’t sure you should vote for the fiercely capable Democrats running for these positions, let me share an important reason why you should vote for the Democratic candidates. The Republican controlled County Board voted to exclude two Important referendum questions from the ballot that would provide you, the voters, with the opportunity to give advice on consolidating the Recorder’s Office with the Clerk’s Office and to reduce the size of the County Board. These questions were proposed by Democratic members of the Board and replaced by the questions that are on your ballot asking about making funding for law enforcement a priority, providing PPE, and training law enforcement. Hello! They are already doing these things, and if not, why not? But, guess what? They can only have 3 questions on the ballot. Enough said, (so if you want to skip something on the ballot, those are the ones to blow past because they are just there for distraction and to appeal to the Republican base. Just make sure to complete your ballot for all the candidate races).

SUPPORT DGTDO OFFICE AND HELP ELECT DEMOCRATS!
In this time of crisis due to COVID-19, we applaud the efforts of our doctors, nurses, health care professionals, health care support staff, fire fighters, EMTs, police, letter carriers, sanitation workers, teachers, store clerks, food production employees, farmers, and everyone else who makes it possible for us to care for those who are ill and those who are isolated at home.

While we are not meeting in person or out knocking on doors, our work continues. In addition to social media and email, we will be doing more outreach through the U.S. Mail. We must also continue to pay for our office rent and utilities.

If you are a monthly supporter, we appreciate your ongoing commitment to the organization. We also appreciate the annual checks that we have received from some of our special donors. We hope that everyone will continue to donate to fund our work during this vital election year. Our priorities will be on voter outreach and engagement to help elect more Democrats here in DuPage County. Don't forget, we can elect a majority on the County Board and the Forest Preserve Commission, as well as electing more judges to the Circuit Court, county wide offices, and to the State Legislature. It is our job to help get voters to the polls and we welcome your support. Here are links to online donation opportunities:


Thank you for your continued support!

PC CORNER
Sample Precinct Letter
PC CORNER - SEPTEMBER 2020.
By Chris Hotchkin
Although many of us have been working throughout the summer—writing postcards, dropping campaign literature at doors, registering voters—this is the time when the campaigns shift into high gear! As precinct committeepersons, our job is to get Democratic voters to vote, providing them with the information and the tools they need to vote.

Here are tasks for us in September:
  1. Prepare a precinct letter. This is a letter from you the PC to the Democratic voters in your precinct. A sample precinct letter is on our website. You can use this sample word for word, or you can create your own letter—it’s your letter and your precinct. Because we are not able to knock on doors due to the pandemic, this letter is especially important for this election. After you write your letter, you can print copies on the machine in our office if you wish.
  2. Pick up bags of literature for Democratic candidates at our office. These bags contain literature for our county-wide candidates. There is also literature for your county board and state rep candidates, depending on your districts. There are also flyers for the Fair Tax Amendment. Take these materials home and stuff your precinct letter and the extra campaign literature into the bags.
  3. You were recently sent a list of likely Democratic voters in your precinct from Sue Sitton. Using this list, or one you create on Vote Builder, drop these bags of literature at the doors of your voters. If you feel comfortable doing so, you may knock on doors—wearing a mask and standing at least 6 feet away from the door.
  4. Using Vote Builder, create a list of your voters with their phone numbers. Follow up with phone calls to your voters and ask how they plan to vote in this election. Ask if they have any questions or would like any signs for Democratic candidates.
  5. Other activities: write postcards to swing states, attend candidate events online, donate to candidates.
ORDER PC BUSINESS CARDS HERE.
Attention Precinct Committeepeople!

We will be making an order for PC business cards this week. If you are interested in getting a set, please fill out this google form:

There will a nominal cost for the business cards, probably $25.
OFFICE RESOURCES AVAILABLE FOR PCs.
DGTDO has resources available at the office to assist precinct committeepersons in their efforts to Get Out the Vote. Resources include:

  • Print and/or make copies of precinct letter and other enclosures/attachments
  • DuPage-wide candidate literature bagged and ready for pick up
  • District-specific candidate literature available to be added to bags
  • Fair Tax one-pager available
  • Print your voter list

Need something else, just ask.

VOLUNTEER
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES.
COVID-19 has not stopped us from GOTV (Get Out the Vote). So what can you do at the DGTDO office? 

  1. Stuff packets for volunteers or Precinct Committeepersons to hang on Democratic voter doors. Generally, you will do this remotely by picking up supplies from the office, banding your completed work in groups of 10, return to office. Contact Sue at sasitton@aol.com
  2. Postcards to swing states. Pick up postcards and list from office. Write suggested message and address,
  3. Phone calls to volunteers or voters. This is the most effective way right now to connect. We need lots of volunteers to help with the ballot chase process. We will set you up with a remote virtual phone bank.
  4. Deliver campaign literature to prospective Democratic voter homes. You will just be hanging on doors with no actual contact. Pick up list and bags from office.
  5. Specific campaigns, contact directly. Visit our website.
  6. Biden-Harris, download Vote Joe app to your smart phone.
  7. Pick up campaign signs and literature (donation is requested for Biden-Harris signs, supply is limited). If you have ordered a sign online from a campaign, or the Democratic Party of DuPage County, please be patient until they deliver it).

2020 ELECTION - TIME FOR CHANGE
Check out an image of DuPage Republican's post embracing Trump after he accepted the nomination.
DuPAGE REPUBLICANS BACK TRUMP AND HIS DESTRUCTION. IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE!
By Joanna Williams
1) DuPage Republicans’ official endorsement of Trump: (Aug 28)
  • “Last night President Donald J Trump officially accepted the nomination of the Republican Party for president of the United States of America. We look forward to supporting his re-election and continued good governance for our country under strong Republican leadership.”
  • Democratic Party of DuPage County response: “So, it is clear, the local Republican Party is the Party of Trump. They are not concerned about Trump’s egregious rhetoric or policies, they are not concerned about his unpatriotic and criminal activites, they are not concerned about his failed leadership when it comes to keeping your health and your livelihood safe. We see what “strong Republican leadership” has brought us – the American people deserve better.”

2) Trump’s Payroll Tax Deferment Debacle – A “Holiday” where you have to give back the gifts!
  • On August 8 President Trump ordered the Treasury Dept to allow employers to stop withholding the employee 6.2 % payroll tax that represents the employee’s share of Social Security taxes for the period Sept 1, 2020 and ending Dec 31, 2020. But since this is a deferment, not a tax cut, these deferred taxes must be repaid between Jan 1, 2021 and April 30, 2021 and employers are allowed to withhold the extra deferred amount from employee paychecks. Needless to say, there has been strong opposition to a “Payroll Tax Holiday” that imposes “serious hardships on employees who will face a large tax bill as a result of deferral” – US Chamber of Commerce.
  • How could this affect the Social Security Fund? Assuming the deferred taxes are repaid in early 2021, there would be no threat to Social Security. However, Trump has indicated that if re-elected he plans to “forgive these (deferred) taxes and terminate the payroll tax.” This would turn a tax deferral into a tax cut which would require an act of Congress. If passed, there could be a threat to Social Security – the key question is whether Congress would include language that reimburses the Social Security Trust Fund from general government revenue.

FAIR TAX - VOTE YES FOR FAIRNESS
The Illinois Fair Tax Amendment protects working families and makes our system more fair. For more information about the Fair Tax, watch Daniel Biss’ presentation and discussion on the Illinois Fair Tax (hosted by Illinois Sixth District Democrats). It’s worth watching. Here’s the link for his presentation.

On Monday, August 31, the DuPage Democratic Central Committee (all Precinct Committeepeople) voted to endorse the Fair Tax Amendment on the 2020 ballot. Find out more here.

DuPAGE REPUBLIANS ADD 3 REFERENDUM ON THE BALLOT. FLUFF?
By Mary Coen
I always vote. That's a given for me. But I admit that there have been times, I'm ashamed to admit, when I have skipped items on the ballot, usually propositions, because I didn't know enough to be certain which way to jump. Since my life is no longer so crazy busy, I do have time now to investigate those propositions before I vote. I'll be glad to share with you some things I have learned about the local DuPage county ballot this year.

There are three propositions from the county this year: two involve the police, and one about medical matters - both very topical right now. The first basically states DuPage should continue to consider the funding of local police forces as its top priority; the second states that DuPage should stockpile medical supplies and personal protection equipment that might be needed for medical emergencies; the third says that DuPage should continue to fund and support police training methods that provide for their safety and that of the public.

On first reading I thought, "Well, duh, of course". Then I began to wonder why they were even on the ballot since they are all non-binding and seemingly non-controversial. So, I read them again. In the first proposal it says that the police should be "its TOP funding priority". Do I really think that police are that much more important than every other community service? Fire departments, teachers, medical and social professionals? They are certainly "a" priority, but "the" top one sets up an unnecessary competition in my mind.

About the medical equipment stockpile issue, I would like to know more: who exactly will be responsible for the collecting/purchasing, storing and ultimately distributing said equipment? Will it be available to be shared with neighboring counties in need and under what conditions could it be shared (sold?) to neighboring states as well? I would like to believe that it would be done fairly and efficiently under the auspices of the medical/scientific community, but recent events have pretty much scotched that assumption.

DGTDO is compiling a list of "Democratic Friendly" businesses in DuPage County, and we are asking for your help.

Our goal is to create a directory to share and encourage support for these businesses. If you know of businesses that support our democratic values and should be included in the directory, fill out this form.
2020 ELECTION - GET OUT THE VOTE
MAKE YOUR VOTING PLAN TODAY.
By Joanna Williams
A voting plan is the key to voting successfully – waiting until the last minute to request a Vote-By-Mail ballot or to find your polling place could mean being unable to vote!
Here’s how to make sure you’re ready to vote and that your vote will count.

CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION. Make sure you are registered to vote at your current address. You may not have voted in a while. You may have moved or changed your name. Check at dupageco.org/VoterLookup/

THE PLAN
  • HOW - decide how you will vote – Vote By Mail; Early Voting In Person; Election OR Day Voting in Person
  • WHEN – add voting dates and deadlines to your calendar.
  • WHERE - make sure to check the location of your polling place before Election Day (if voting on Election Day). 
  • WHAT – plan to research your candidates and read over your sample ballot before voting.
  • PLAN FOR ELECTION DAY – if you decide to vote in person on Election Day, think about your schedule for the day. Will you need to vote in the morning? After class? In the evening after work? Will you need a ride to the polls? Does your neighbor?
  • PLAN TO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO VOTE - friends, co-workers, newly 18-year-old nieces and nephews! Join with friends to vote together Early or on Election Day. Pledge to call 5 people and ask them to vote, and ask each of them to call 5 more people.
