Welcome to Frankfort Township Republican Organization. On April 9, 2013, Frankfort Township voters overwhelmingly re-elected all 9 members of the Frankfort Township Republican slate who ran a positive campaign on their record of accomplishments and strong fiscal conservatism. A voter backlash to the Madigan-Chicago style campaigning by the Democrats increased local Republican voting. The Chicago style Democrat efforts in Frankfort Township included: Negative Robo calls with false accusations and without the required attribution; large scale mailings to Frankfort Township Democrat voters threatening to expose them to public ridicule if they did not vote on April 9th; harassment of Democrat voters for failure to send in their absentee ballots; failure to promptly turn over absentee ballot requests to the Will County Clerk's Office; and violations of the Campaign Disclosure laws. The result was that the Frankfort Township Republican slate more than doubled their winning margins from 4 years ago. With papers filed with the State Board of Elections in May and August, 2013, the Frankfort Township Democrats dissolved their organization.
During the November 4, 2014 General Election, Frankfort Township led Will County in voter turnout. As a result of the New Lenox, Homer and Frankfort Township Republican Organizations' efforts, Margo McDermed won her election for Illinois House Representative with more Republican votes than any other contested Republican House election in Illinois. In the November 8, 2016 General Election, the New Lenox, Homer and Frankfort Township Republican Organizations led by far the 24 Will County Townships in getting out more votes for Donald Trump for President than any other Presidential candidates.
