Our Mission

The Electoral Working Group is dedicated to advancing Socialism, and the particular policy goals of Chicago DSA through electoral work.

What We Do

Electoral has canvassed for candidates, passed a new endorsement process, and worked with other working groups on campaigns like lifting the ban on rent control in the 2018 primaries.

Our Leadership Structure

We have elected co-chairs, an elected facilitator and other elected positions: secretary, committee heads for candidate outreach, canvassing and outreach to other working groups.

Getting Involved

New members can dive in to any part of our process of electoral work, no experience required. We have committees on outreach to candidates, canvassing, writing our candidate questionnaire and a lot more. No matter how you want to help us, we’re going to elect some socialists in 2019. Make sure to check the calendar for our next meeting.
