I was wondering about the internet looking for things political and found the following notice for the Democratic Party’s biennial convention:
The Democratic Party of McHenry County will meet at 7:00 p.m., April 16 at McHenry County College in room B166-167. This facility is handicap accessible.
This meeting serves as the biennial County Convention, at which officers are elected to lead the party for a two-year term. All precinct committeemen elected at the March 18, 2014 primary are eligible to vote at this meeting.
