Check for running DHCP daemon?

So I've got this python 3 script that needs to know if there is a 
running DHCP daemon (ISC DHCP server) on the local system. Is there a 
clean way to do this that (1) doesn't require me to do syscalls to local 
utilities (like ps, top, etc), and (2) doesn't require any custom 
modules (stock only)?
