It has been a hectic week since Election Day on March 17th. Even in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, our loyal Republican voters went out to cast their ballot and it showed! We successfully helped many of our endorsed candidates across the finish line victorious which means we have great candidates up and down the ticket to take on Democrats in November.
While ensuring we have strong and viable candidates on the ballot in November is important, the real focus we should all be turning our attention towards is the safety of our community, state, and country amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
I strongly encourage everyone to stay at home and follow the orders of our government so we can ensure we flatten the curve and reduce the spread of this virus. Our local, state, and federal government has done an incredible job to respond to this crisis and ensure we are taking the necessary precautions to save lives. In our email below, we’ve included crucial resources so you, your friends, family, and neighbors can stay up to date on this ever changing virus.
If we all do our part in staying safe and healthy, we can get back to hosting events and campaigning for our Republicans on the ballot in November!

Election Day is nearly 2 weeks away which means our Republican candidates are working around the clock to make sure voters have the information they need to make a clear decision on Election Day. If we want quality candidates on the ballot for the General Election, that means we need to make sure we are displaying yard signs, canvassing door-to-door, making phone calls, and invigorating voters to go out and make their voice heard. Here at the SCRCC, we have made our endorsements, which you can read below, for which candidates we will be supporting on March 17th.
With your hardwork and support, the Sangamon County Republican Central Committee will fight to ensure our county stays represented by Republicans!
