The McDonough County Democratic Central Committee (MDCC) is recognized by the State of Illinois as a formal and legal entity of the Democratic Party in Illinois. McDonough County is divided into 31 Precincts. One person living in each precinct may be elected in the Democratic primary to serve a two year term on the McDonough County Democratic Central Committee. Those elected then choose a Democratic County Chair person, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer for that term. If no one runs for committee person in a precinct the County Chair may appoint someone to that position. We currently have 9 empty precinct committee slots. The Central Committee Needs Precinct Committee Members Now
You do not have to live in a precinct to be appointed to be its committee person. Please consider joining a pool of possible appointees. We will need all hands-on deck for the 2024 elections. The Central Committee currently meets at 6:30 pm on the fourth Monday of each month in the Macomb City Hall Community room. All local Democrats are invited to attend. DUE TO COVID-19, ALL MEETING WILL BE HELD VIA ZOOM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
