Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." -- Barack Obama, 2008 Super Tuesday

YOU SHOULD RUN FOR LOCAL OFFICE! It is not too early to start planning to run for local office in April 2021. Spring and summer is an excellent time to start learning how to run for office.
In 2021, only the Palatine Township Board races are partisan, meaning that candidates can declare their political party. The other local races are all non-partisan. GPAD is happy to help all candidates learn how to run for public office.
