~ Get tickets through October 31 ~

- Win Valuable Prizes! -

Hey, McLean County Republicans! Let's have a little bit of fun in getting your candidates' yard signs out for people to see.
We know that one of the most effective ways to get a candidate elected is through the use of yard signs. It greatly assists in the branding and name recognition. Seeing a yard signs heightens the curiosity of many voters and causes them to research the candidate and what they stand for!
The McLean County Republicans headquarters has quite a few signs in our office and they would do much better in yards and high visibility locations throughout the county. So, here is the deal...
From now until October 31st (or until our sign inventory runs out), when you come in to our office and take a sign, you will get a raffle ticket. Take two signs, get two raffle tickets. Take three signs, get three tickets -- all the way to a maximum of five signs and five tickets. If you take a 4x4 yard sign, you will get four tickets!
When you come to get your signs, enter your name in our log and indicate where you plan to put the sign(s).
We can't guarantee that we'll have a sign for every candidate or issue you wish to support, so feel free to phone to office at (309) 353-8467 during our office hours and we can check our inventory for you.
Then, on Tuesday, November 8th, at our evening MCGOP Watch Party, we will draw four (4) winning numbers from the collected raffle tickets. Winners need not be present to win and the winning raffle numbers will be posted on our McLean County Republicans website, our Facebook site and through an email blast!
There is no cost to purchase a raffle ticket and the signs are free of charge. Winners will have 30 days to claim their prizes.
The GRAND PRIZE and three identical runner-up prizes are as follows:
GRAND PRIZE: A $75 gift certificate to Marcus Theaters + $15 gift card for snacks.
RUNNER UP PRIZES: $75 gift cards from Amazon.
Again, yard signs are important and they aren't doing a whole lot of good sitting in our office. Come on in, get a few signs and get your raffle tickets. You might be one of our lucky winners!
