Voting in the Democratic Party of Evanston’s (DPOE)endorsement session on Dec. 13 resulted in only four endorsements: Pat Quinn for Governor of Illinois; David Hoffman for United States Senate; Toni Preckwinkle for Cook County Board President; and Larry Suffredin for Cook County Commissioner, 13th District.

None of the five candidates seeking the party’s nomination for 18th District state representative was endorsed. According to DPOE rules, to win endorsement a candidate must be ranked as first choice on two-thirds of the ballots cast. In races with three or more candidates, a candidate must be ranked first on more than half of the ballots cast. In that event, the ballots are recounted, a candidate who is ranked above “No Endorsement” on two-thirds of the ballots cast will be endorsed.
