MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR - OCTOBER EDITION
By Kim Savage, DGTDO Chair
This is the last newsletter before Election Day, and I am excited about the level of engagement we have seen in this election cycle. I am proud of the candidates, the Precinct Committeepeople, and the volunteers who have actively contacted voters in creative ways despite the limitation of the pandemic.

Thousands of people in Downers Grove Township have already voted and even more have requested Vote by Mail ballots that must still be completed and returned. While this is encouraging, there are still thousands of our Democratic neighbors who have not voted. So, our fervent work to make sure all of the people who share our Democratic values cast their ballots by Election Day. Please continue to do what you can to help make sure that your friends and family make a voting plan and then follow through to go to the polls and know they need to complete their ballot by voting Democratic in all of the races. Make calls, send texts, put up signs, and distribute campaign literature. 

I hope you will all use the resources in this newsletter to plug in where you can to ensure Democratic victories up and down the ballot.

Wishing you all happy election outcomes. The next chapter begins November 4 with preparation for the Consolidated Election in April.
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 - OCTOBER 2020.
By Chris Hotchkin
Now is the time for the most important role of a precinct committeeperson—Get Out the Vote!

Here are tasks for us in October:

  1. If you have not done so yet, write a letter to the Democratic voters in your precinct and distribute it with Democratic campaign literature.
  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.
  3. You were 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. Obtain a list of Democrats in your precinct who have not voted yet. You can do this on Vote Builder or ask Sue Sitton to create one for you. Contact these voters using the post-its we will have printed, or by phone and encourage them to vote early or on election day. If voters have applied for Vote by Mail, encourage them to send in their ballot right away!
  5. If you can be a poll watcher in your precinct on Election Day, notify Beth Brownson.
TWO WEEKS TO GO. EMERGENCY ALERT... VOTE NOW!
As Kim discussed in our meeting last week, we ordered Post-It notes with information about ways to vote and to encourage voters to get out to vote. Information includes Vote by Mail, Early Voting and Election Day Voting options. We plan to have the Post-It notes at the office ready for pick up by PCs and volunteers by this weekend.
 
Updated voter lists will be available and voters who have already voted will be removed from the list. Let Sue Sitton sasitton@aol.com know when you plan to walk your precinct, and the list will be ready for you. Also, let her know if you want the list emailed or printed for pick up at the office.

Thank you all for stepping up and for all of the amazing work you do!
CANDIDATE FLYER FOR YOUR PRECINCT! IT CAN BE YOURS!
Are you interested in having a flyer with all of the candidates listed for your precinct? If so, you are in luck. We have flyer configurations from A to J for DGTDO. The reverse side of the flyer has information about ways to vote and includes a space to add the Election Day Polling location for your precinct.

If you are interested, you can stop by the office to make copies or email Sue Sitton sasitton@aol.com to get the correct configuration for you. Also, if you are interested, we have the League of Women Voters flyer on the Fair Tax Amendment.

A special thanks to Rebecca Schejbal for taking the initiative to originate this format. It has been useful to many Democratic PCs in Downers Grove. Thank you Rebecca from each of us!
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 TO MAKE CALLS TO VOTERS. GOTV!
As of Monday, October 19, we have 15 days left until Election Day. Yikes! How did that go by so quickly? Or maybe not so quickly.

The point is there is no time to waste. Now is the time to contact voters who have not yet voted and get each one out to vote. Two phone banks have been set up for volunteers to make calls to these voters. Making calls is a way to volunteer that can allow for flexibility in your schedule. So, please give as much time as you can. If each of us does a something, it will add up to a lot! And we will WIN!

Help us make sure we do not leave any ballots on the table! Help contact Democrats to make sure they return their mail in ballots. Please log in with your Action ID to the following phonebanks on your computer and make the calls using your phone. If you do not have an Action ID, follow the instructions to create one.

VOLUNTEER TO BE A POLL WATCHER. IT'S IMPORTANT!
By Beth Brownson
Poll watchers are official election process observers in the voting site before, during and after voting on Election Day. A poll watcher may observe setting up of the polls, the election process during the day and closing of the polls.

A poll watcher must be a registered voter in Illinois and affiliated with a political party or organization for which they will be poll watching. They must have credentials from a valid candidate, organization, or political party. A precinct committeeperson can be a poll watcher.

Poll watchers may not wear any campaign material or display or distribute any campaign material within 100 feet of the polling place. 

Poll watching is an important position and essential to providing for a safe and secure election, especially this year. If you are interested in becoming a poll watcher for the November 3rd election, you will be provided with credentials, a checklist and incident report forms. 

For more information, please contact Beth Brownson at bethbrownson@comcast.net or by phone at (630) 964-2703 (home) or
(630) 709-7757 (cell).
LEGAL PROFESSIONALS NEEDED AT THE POLLS ON ELECTION DAY.
By Julia Kennedy Beckman, State Central Committeewomen, 11th Congressional District
The Democratic Party of Illinois is partnering with Democratic County Chairs to find volunteer legal professionals and poll watchers for Election Day. Legal professionals can be lawyers, law students or paralegals. They do not need election law experience. Training will be provided. Poll watchers will be assigned to precincts (especially those who frequently have trouble makers) where there are no precinct committeepeople. They will need credentials from County Chairs or candidates. Check the DPI website at www.ildems.com/volunteer.

Attorneys may send me their names at beckman110@comcast.net and I will forward them to the right people. Thanks in advance for your service!
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).
WORKING TOGETHER WITH TEAM CASTEN - SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER.

2020 ELECTION - TIME FOR CHANGE
BALLOT DOES NOT SAY "FAIR TAX"... HOW DO I VOTE YES?
Many voters have asked “where is the Fair Tax Amendment” on the ballot? Fair Tax is not a legal term but used as a “marketing” term. To hopefully clear up any confusion, the image provided shows where the Amendment is on the ballot (bottom left corner on the front). Here’s the text of the two sections identified (it does not include the Spanish paragraph version of the text). Hope this is helpful.

CONSTITUTION BALLOT
PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE 1970 ILLINOIS
CONSTITUTION

Explanation of Amendment

The proposed amendment grants the State authority to impose higher income tax rates on higher income levels, which is how the federal government and a majority of other states do it. The amendment would remove the portion of the Revenue Article of the Illinois Constitution that is sometimes referred to as the "flat tax," that requires all taxes on income to be at the same rate. The amendment does not itself change tax rates. It gives the State the ability to impose higher tax rates on those with higher income levels and lower income tax rates on those with middle or lower income levels. You are asked to decide whether the proposed amendment should become a part of the Illinois Constitution.

For the proposed amendment of Section 3 of Article IX of the Illinois Constitution. Para la enmienda propuesta a la Sección 3 del Artículo IX de la Constitución de Illinois.

___ Yes/Sí
___ No
FAIR TAX - WHERE IS IT ON THE BALLOT?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.

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.
