VBM Challenge Success and Thank you

When a County-Wide Candidate wins by 75 votes, in a race where 466,167 ballots were cast, it is clear that the work we did over the last 3 weeks to resolve VBM Challenges made a difference. This effort also helped increase the margins on a number of other close races that Democrats won. Thank you DuPage Democrats.
