The Democratic Candidates for Downers Grove Township are to be commended for representing us well on April 4. This was a low turnout election with only 18.6% of the vote. While the outcome of the election was not what we had hoped to see, there is good news in the numbers. The candidates generated at least 2,000 more votes per candidate than in either of the two previous elections. Unfortunately, the Republican candidates also generated 2,000 more votes per candidate than the previous election. The DGTDO is proud of the dedication that our candidates gave on behalf of the voters. We look forward to increase the Democratic voter base with your support.
