Women make up 51% of McHenry County’s population, yet we are significantly underrepresented in the number of female elected officials.

McHenry County Democratic Women plan to change this!

Our Mission Statement

McCDW is a Democratic women’s organization with its purpose being to encourage, empower and support women running for partisan and non-partisan local and state offices. 

McCDW seeks to overcome the unique obstacles women encounter as candidates particularly in raising funds, campaign management, and attracting grassroots support.

Empower and Support

When women come together for a common goal, we get things done. As we grow, we will be able to affect the change we all desire in the demographics and diversity of leadership in our county.


Money is an important tool in elections.  McCDW will help financially support women candidates so they can spend their valuable time on their campaign instead of fundraising.

Campaign Management

Running for office means a lot of time management and planning skills.  McCDW will help train and support our women candidates so they have the skills necessary to win their election.
