Democracy continues during this time of crisis. Now more than ever, the Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association is working to support Democrats who place the interests of Illinois families first, in good times and difficult times as well.
With that in mind, we have put together a list of resources to help you get through this crisis. We have links to Federal, State and Local government information on the corona virus and what you should know. We have political links including an online course for candidates from the National Democratic Training Committee. We have learning links for students and life-long learners at home. Of course, we have some fun links as well like virtual museum tours, podcasts and concerts.
We are doing everything we can to re-engineer our service offerings so we can continue to build solid Democratic support at the county and even the precinct level throughout the entire State of Illinois.

Be safe, be healthy, and vote Democratic. We will get through this.
