Get to know all candidates before heading to the Primary Election on Tues., June 28, 2022
This unofficial list of candidates running to serve Naperville in DuPage County, Will County, Springfield and Washington, DC, may be incomplete. Any omissions or misspellings are regretted.
Incumbents are not identified in the hope voters will seek information on all candidates before heading to the Primary to elect a chosen party’s candidates for the General Election on Tues., Nov. 8.
Illinois is an open primary state, which means that voters are not required to register with a party to participate.
Though early voting is in process at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton and the County Clerk’s Office in Joliet, beginning June 13, many local sites will be open for in-person early voting.
Election Day hours are 6AM to 7PM Tues., June 28.
Elected offices included are for County Board, State Legislature, State Senate, US Senate and US Congress. Again, incumbents are not identified as such. Kindly get to know all candidates who serve as elected officials currently. Review, contrast and compare candidates’ campaign information received in the mail. Search for candidate websites online. Talk to friends, family and neighbors. Talk with candidates and campaign volunteers who might be canvassing your neighborhood. Attend meet and greet events.
Registered voters will consider all those choices on the ballot. To us, liberty, justice and patriotism matters. Independent thinkers with ideas for common-sense solutions are sought at every level for effective limited government that advances peace and public safety in our community while promoting a high quality of life for all freedom-loving individuals.
For now, simply become familiar with the Primary candidates by party, listed in no particular order, who want to serve Naperville. Thank you.
