I've never been on the ballot before.
I volunteered to become precinct committeeman for the Democratic Party in Naperville Township's 23rd precinct. It's an elected party office, so my name will be on the ballot, at just one polling place.
The Democrats have, let us say, a lot of room for growth in Dupage County. They've managed to recruit a whole lot more precinct committemen than they've had in years.
I volunteered for a phone bank last weekend and spent a couple of hours calling voters. I was pleasantly surprised at how many positive reactions I got. We need things to change, and I want to help do what I can.
