Considering Running for Office?

There is still time for 2021 candidates to circulate petitions to get on the ballot.

With thousands of local non-partisan offices up for election in almost every Illinois community, the April 2021 consolidated elections are the best opportunity for Greens to run for office and WIN.

Since 2011 the DuPage Greens have won 7 out of the 8 campaigns (88%) we ran for local non-partisan offices! See About Us for more details.

Most of the offices up for election—such as regional board of school trustees, park board, or library board—in most communities are low-profile, and will require little money and a moderate amount of effort to win. Most of the effort required would go into serving your community as an elected official.  Other offices are usually more competitive like mayor, village president, city council, village board, township trustee, or school board, but well worth pursuing if that is you passion.
