Welcome to the New Trier Democratic Organization's home page.

Who are we? The New Trier Democratic Organization is a volunteer, grass-roots organization that actively promotes good government.


What is our history? The New Trier Democratic Organization has been a positive presence on the North Shore for over 30 years. Starting as a small but dedicated core, we have grown to over 500 volunteers who mobilize to get out the Democratic vote. We have a permanent office in Winnetka.


How have the democrats done in New Trier Township? More voters have taken Democratic ballots than Republican in five out of the last six elections. Bill Clinton carried New Trier in both 1992 and 1996. In 1996 and 1998, Democrats carried New Trier in the majority of major contested races.


What else do we do? We are active all year long. Among other activities, we sponsor forums on important public issues, spearhead voter registration drives,and enjoy each others' company at an annual dinner featuring a speaker of note.


Want to know more? We'd love to meet you. E-mail us now and we will have your area chairman or precinct captain give you a call.
