We are the 47th Ward Democrats

The 47th Ward Democrats turned out the most votes for Democrats in Chicago and we are looking to do it again and again in every election. Our north side community is the place where we believe in progressive values like equal rights and opportunity for all. Our democratic ward organization sees a path to those values through politics. We work to elect strong Democrats who are faithful to those core values.
