Think that no part of DuPage will ever elect a Democrat? Think again! In 2004, US Senate candidate Barack Obama swept York Township with a record-setting 63.6% of the vote. In 2006, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan broke that record, earning 66.2% of the vote in York in a three-way race. Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White and Comptroller Dan Hynes, also running in three-way races, likewise won majorities of the vote in York. State Representative candidate Joe Vosicky and County Board candidates Richard Dunn and Dan Bailey also won the York portions of their districts, although they did not win their overall races. In 2008, Barack Obama (for President) and Richard Durbin (Senator) carried York Township, and Dunn (running again for County Board) and Gary Nowak (for State Representative) carried the York portions of their districts, and Rita Gonzalez was elected in County Board District One.

Out of nine townships in DuPage, York has consistently had the highest number of Democratic ballots per registered voter in primaries since 2006. We are on the verge of taking our government back from the Republicans, but we need your help to make it happen.
