Hello DuPage Libertarians! It’s been a pretty busy spring so far for all of us. Our candidates are out there, hitting the campaign trail, meeting with voters and talking to the media – but we still have to get over that first big hurdle, the Petition Drive. As you may or may not know, Republicans and Democrats need 5,000 signatures to get on the ballot in November, but due to heavily slanted rules, we need 25,000 signatures for that same privileged. That is not an easy task. There are two big ways you can help us.
The first is to is to go to www.LPIllinois.org and download a copy of the petiton form and collect signatures on our behalf. You can watch the videos on the site to learn how.
The second way is to donate money to help us with paid petitioners who collect signatures for us to help us reach our goal. You can either click on the link to the right to donate directly to your DuPage Libertarians, or you can come out to our Petition Drive Fundraiser and participate in the fun while contributing to our cause!
On Saturday, May 10th from 7pm till midnight, the Petition Drive Fundraiser will take place at Club Amore @ 8166 W. Grand Ave. in River Grove, IL just 3 blocks east of the River Grove Metra Rail station.
There is no cover charge, but all donations are GREATLY appreciated. There will also be a silent auction throughout the night as we auction off some great prizes, including a practice guitar, delicious baked goods and a comic book version of the Constitution (historically accurate in every way with the founding father drawn in great detail) autographed by the artist!
You can also meet our candidates running for office, ask them questions and even take photos with them. In attendance will be Chad Grimm for Governor, AJ Cummings for Lt. Governor, Chris Michel for Secretary of State, Julie Fox for Comptroller and Sharon Hansen for US Senate. Candidates will also speak on stage and give interviews to media in attendance.
And of course, throughout the night, music will be provided by acoustic artist Jason Kluss who will open the first several hours, followed by rock alternative band NatureDevil later in the night.
This is a great event that you won’t want to miss, and your time and contribution will be greatly appreciated and will go a long way to help ensure that we get our candidates on the ballot in November. Hope to see you there!
