We meet at 6:30 pm on every 4th Monday, at Macomb City Hall Community Room
What is the "Central Committee"? 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 Chairman, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer for that term. If no one runs for committeeman 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 committeeman. Please consider joining a pool of possible appointees. We will need all hands on deck for the 2018 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.
What precinct are you in? Your address determines your precinct. Look on your voter registration card or check the map at this link: http://gis.wiu.edu/js/precinct/ or call Voter Registration in Courthouse 833-4649.
How to run for Precinct Committeeman in a Primary
To run for Precinct Committeeman (yes, man is the official name of the office, for now…) in your precinct:
Pick up a Precinct Committeeman Primary Petition from the Voter Registration office in the basement of the McDonough County Courthouse, open M-F 8am to 4pm.
Get signatures from at least 10 registered voters in your precinct. We can help you identify people in your precinct who voted in the previous Democratic Primary if you want.
Get your completed petition notarized (Note: we can help with that, if needed).
Turn your completed, notarized petition back in to the Voter Registration office.
You will then be on the ballot for the Primary Election. Be sure to vote for yourself!
The Central Committee and the Coalition are truly partners and cooperate on all of our local events. The two organizations share a post office box at P.O.
