The Illinois Democratic Party is planning to hold an organizational meeting for the state central committee. Party Chairman Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan says there are new members of the state central committee since the March 18 primary election.

Members will elect party officials at Tuesday’s event in Springfield. Madigan says members of the public are invited to attend.

The state central committee now has 36 members, down from 38 — one man and one woman from each congressional district. Each member has a weighted vote equal to the number of Democratic ballots cast in that member’s congressional district in the primary election.
