Tenth Dems Volunteers Attend Events to Support Democrats in Lake County

Let’s Talk Politics in Gurnee May 25th

Even now, a year after the Supreme Court’s horrendous and ugly Dobbs decision that nullified Roe v. Wade, the war against reproductive health care rights continues to rage. Ultra right-wing judges and the MAGA-controlled Republican Party have every intention of banning abortion nation-wide at any cost. They are perfectly willing to deny proper medical treatment during miscarriages and to force motherhood even on adolescents and teenagers who have been raped.

We hope you’ll join us for our next installment of Tenth Dems U’s Let’s Talk Politics series, with a focus on reproductive rights. This is an urgently important conversation.

What: Tenth Dems, Warren Dems and Lake Dems cohost Tenth Dems U’s Let’s Talk Politics—Focus on Reproductive Rights.
When: Thursday, May 25, 2023, from 7 to 8:30pm.
Where: Tacos El Norte, 401 N Riverside Dr, Gurnee

Make a Plan to Vote by Tuesday, April 4

Did you know that off-year municipal elections are historically low turnout elections? Your vote really matters, as numerous candidates espousing right-wing views are on the ballot this year. One of them even took part in the January 6 insurrection!

Election Day is next Tuesday, April 4. You may still register to vote during Early Voting at any Early Voting site, or on Election Day at your home polling place. If you register during Early Voting or on Election Day and want to vote in the current election, you must vote at the same time. You will need two forms of identification, one of which must show your current Lake County address. Check out this list for what is acceptable.

If you have any questions about registering to vote or voting in the April 4 election, call the Lake County Democrats’ Voter Assistance Hotline at 847-432-8683.
