With less than 40 days until the November general election, the Democratic Party of Illinois (DPI) this weekend contacted 188,778 voters during a statewide Weekend of Action.
The Weekend of Action included dozens of events spanning communities across the state, featuring Governor JB Pritzker, DPI Chair Lisa Hernandez, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider, Comptroller Susana Mendoza, and other Illinois Democrats.
“This weekend, we took action to energize and mobilize tens of thousands of voters in communities across our state,” said DPI Chair Lisa Hernandez. “With less than 40 days to go until the election, the stakes couldn’t be higher. We’re doing the work now to make sure we win in November and keep Illinois the pro-choice, pro-union, pro-working family state we’re so proud of.”
The successful Weekend of Action follows a number of recent announcements from the DPI team including new senior hires and the launch of a new ad campaign featuring DPI’s first-ever Spanish-language ads and targeting Black and downstate voters in over 230 zip codes.
DPI is investing in its people, its infrastructure, and its mission to mobilize voters and unify Democrats in the home stretch leading up to the November election.
