Welcome to Glencoe Caucus

We live in an era of political unrest, conflict and polarization, even at many levels of local government.  Glencoe forefathers had the foresight and wisdom to find a way for neighbors to be neighbors in developing a candidate selection process that represents the best interest of the people who live here.   Since its establishment in 1936, the Glencoe Caucus has been the premier means through which well-qualified, experienced, and respected citizens are identified as candidates for elective offices in the Village.

The Caucus consists of two Nominating Committees (a “Village Nominating Committee” and a “School Board Nominating Committee”) that slate candidates for Glencoe’s elected positions on all boards overseeing local government. It also includes an Advisory Council to oversee the operations of the Nominating Committees. 

Detailed information about your Caucus can be found throughout this website, by reading the Caucus plan, or by contacting a Caucus member.
