“I don’t think it’s a fluke, I don’t think it’s a one-off, I don’t think DuPage is blue, But I think what it means is that we’re in the game now and we’re here to stay.”
-Cynthia Borbas on the 2020 Election
Chair of the Democratic Party of DuPage County

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.
