CANDIDATES

The Kankakee County Democratic Party is working to recruit a diverse group of highly qualified Democratic candidates. We are seeking candidates who are committed to equal representation and opportunity for every individual regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity or financial status.

Nearly every odd-numbered county board district in Kankakee County is held in a Republican seat.  Please check out this map and consider running.  There is still time to be slated by the Party by June 2020.  County board members are paid a stipend.  Committee meetings are held monthly on weekday mornings, so a candidate would need to have a flexible day time schedule.
