You want to go to GPAD's Candidate Forum for Secretary of State Sept. 28 at Palatine Public Library

The Illinois Secretary of State's race is THE hottest race in 2022! Come meet the candidates in person and learn the issues facing the largest state agency in Illinois. Consider: Jesse White has been the Secretary of State since first winning the office in 1998. He is the longest-serving Secretary of State Illinois has ever had, as well as the first Black Secretary of State. Who will take his place? Here's your chance to meet the candidates! Sign up here.

Greater Palatine Area Democrats is honored to co-host this event with Illinois Sixth Democrats, Wheeling Township Democrats, Elk Grove Township Democrats, Barrington Area Democratic Organization, and NWSOFA-Indivisible. Make sure you sign up to attend, and bring your questions! (If, heaven forbid, we need to switch to Zoom, we'll send all the RSVP'd attendees a link to the online event.) 

Democratic candidates for other offices are welcome to attend and share your campaign literature. You will have a chance to introduce yourselves at the event.
