Announcing Your 2020 Convention Proctor Committee

The convention process for the 2020 Will County Democratic Convention is underway. Nominations began on Monday, and continue until Friday, May 15.
In order to facilitate a seamless and transparent vote-by-mail convention, the Will County Democratic Party has chosen to designate a panel of impartial Democrats to manage the most sensitive parts of the convention, including mailing out ballots, counting the votes, and ensuring the integrity of the election's operations.
The proctor committee consists of:
  • Kevin "Duffy" Blackburn, Will County Auditor
  • Andrea Lynn Chasteen, Will County Circuit Court Clerk
  • Lauren Staley Ferry, Will County Clerk
  • Karen Gonzalez, former longtime precinct committeeperson who has overseen multiple county conventions
  • Karen A. Stukel, Will County Recorder of Deeds
The proctor committee is already hard at work. They will be calling candidates to determine whether they accept the nominations they've received and determining the slates of those nominated for chair. On Saturday at noon, they will be hosting a drawing to determine ballot placement, and sending ballots off to the printers - a unionized print shop - early next week. Ballots will be mailed out May 29.
Further instructions and information will be included on the ballots and in further communications from the Will County Democratic Party.
The executive board is immensely grateful to the proctor committee for donating their time and effort to ensuring that the 2020 convention is run efficiently, effectively, and transparently in the wake of COVID-19 and Governor Pritzker's stay-at-home orders.
