Palatine Republicans

Palatine Township Republican Organization is located at 765 N Quentin Rd in Palatine, IL.  Palatine Township, with a population of 113,000 residents, is the second largest township in Cook County. Led by Committeeman Aaron Del Mar since his election win in 2010, we continue to grow as we welcome all Republicans and Independents into the organization.  Our foundation is anchored by a number of volunteers who have been involved in local politics for decades, and we are energized by a number of new young volunteers looking to make their voice heard.

Our monthly meetings are held at our office on the first Saturday of every month beginning at 9am.  We encourage the community to come out and support our candidates, listen to potential candidates debate, and let their voices be heard.  Without you there is no PTRO, but with all of our efforts we can make a difference.

Please come back and visit our website as we post information regarding elections, get out the vote, candidate profiles, and issues that are of concern to you.  You can also visit our Facebook page and help us get the word out as to why it is so important that we support our local Republican candidates and politicians.
