We encourage all elected officials and candidates for public office to be a part of March to the Polls 2018 by joining with your supporters and constituents to participate in the rally and march on January 20. No "official roll call" is being made from the stage this year, therefore there is no need to 'check-in' to organizers at the rally unless you are a confirmed speaker. Please plan to meet your supporters, and rally and march together.
Groups can register to attend and designate meet spots via the WMC website. All registered groups are listed on the website. http://womens121marchonchicago.org/group-meet-information/
January 20 is a kick off for March to the Polls activities that will continue with Women's March Chicago and its organizing partners throughout 2018.
There are 3 ways that elected officials and candidates can be a part of March to the Polls 2018 in an ongoing way:
1- By telling us you stand with women and allies. We will list your name on the WMC website and in our social media outlets as a supporter of March to the Polls 2018.
2- By submitting a video statement of support. If you are interested in self-recording and submitting a video statement of support about the importance of women and allies Marching to the Polls in 2018, your statement can be included in the digital history archive being created by Women's March Chicago. Your statement will also be included on our website and used in our social media outlets.
3 - For Female and non-binary candidates for office: We are planning a section of the WMC website that will highlight your candidacy. Let us know if you are interested to be included in our Female Candidate Spotlight on the WMC website. This section on our website will be launched following January 20.
