The following is some recent information from the Dupage County Election Commission. We are in desperate need of Election Judges. Also, it is highly recommended to vote early. As of now WTDO polling locations remain the same.
Please stay safe, practice social distancing, and proper hand washing techniques.
Election Division: Jean Kaczmarek - County Clerk
The DuPage County Clerk’s office, after consultation with local and state agencies, is announcing a series of actions being taken to respond to the impact of the COVID-19 Coronavirus on the administration of the 2020 primary election.
Election judge pay is being increased for this election from $130 to $200 for Election Day and from $10 per hour to $15 per hour for Early Voting judges.
DuPage County has suffered an ongoing and increasing loss of election judges over the past week and is in great need of additional workers. Displaced college students and service industry workers are especially encouraged to apply at: https://www.dupageco.org/Election/JudgeApplication/
Fourteen Election Day polling places are being relocated to the DuPage County Fairgrounds at 2015 Manchester Rd. in Wheaton.
In compliance with official guidance received from the Illinois Department of Public Health, no long-term care or senior living facilities will be used as Election Day polling locations. Election Division staff has been collaborating all week with the affected facilities to provide vote-by-mail ballots to their residents and avoid the need for members of vulnerable populations to interact with the general public on Election Day. This list of affected polling places can be found at: https://www.dupageco.org/election/

Next WTDO meeting:
One of the safest things to do, in this crisis of the Coronavirus, is social isolation. We are now seeing numerous events cancelled and even whole seasons of sports. The St Patrick Day parades are cancelled in Naperville and St Charles along with a number of other events. The safety and well being of everyone associated with WTDO is of utmost importance to us. Because of that we decided to cancel our March 18th meeting.
Further, the County Convention, where all elected Precinct Committeepersons elect our Dupage County Chair, Vice Chair, and Treasurer, is to be held April 15th. That would conflict with our usual April meeting. We will keep you updated as time is closer as to how we will handle our April meeting.
Your participation in WTDO is greatly appreciated. Together we will get through whatever lies ahead for us. Please, be aware of those around you that may need assistance. Maybe an elderly neighbor that could use help getting groceries, etc. The term social isolation brings to mind loneliness. Let's not let that happen to each other. We can still call, text, and email. If you are in need, email us here at WTDO. We are here for you! Take care everyone!
Join up today and get all the important updates and events sent to your email! Go Now!
