Campaign Literature Organizing Event
The DuPage Libertarians will be stuffing bags in preparation for literature distribution throughout the month of September and October.
Basically, this is an excuse for us to get together outside of our normal business meetings to grab a bite to eat, have a few drinks, and get something done.
We will be stuffing plastic door-hanging bags with literature from the campaigns for all five statewide ticket candidates on the ballot. It only takes an hour or so, and the more people we have, the quicker it goes. if you would like to join us, and maybe grab a yard sign for yourself in the process, feel free to come out.
Emmett’s is a great brewery in Downers Grove with a solid menu and good service. We’ll be taking over a few tables in the back room.

DuPage Libertarians Monthly Meeting
With our statewide ticket officially being on the ballot, there will be PLENTY to discuss at our August meeting, and plenty of ways for you to get involved as well.
Over the next several weeks, our statewide candidates will be attending endorsement hearings from the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times, as well as several debates being hosted including one by NBC with the governor candidates. You’ll be able to get the most updated information on these events, as well as how to get involved and help out the campaigns. Every volunteer matters.
We also have YARD SIGNS! You can get them for Kash, Claire, Mike, Steve, Bubba, and even a limited edition run for Sanj. Along with those yard signs will come some campaign literature that volunteers can walk neighborhoods and hang on doors if they choose to do so.
The DuPage Libertarians will also be planning a weekend camping trip to DuQuoin, IL for the DuQuoin State Fair. The best campaign meetings take place around firepits with our southern IL libertarian friends.
Upcoming events that we will be discussing include the “Good Old Days” Parade in Winfield, of which this will be our third year participating in.
You can learn all these details and more by joining us at our meeting, and asking questions. Chances are you will also run into at least a statewide candidate or two in attendance, so why not come out and bring a friend?
As always, our meetings are free, all ages, and open to the public. Social hour starts at 6pm, meeting begins at 7pm.
