We need more Democrats on the Local Ballots!

YES YOU! WHY NOT YOU?   WE NEED MORE DEMOCRATS ON THE LOCAL BALOTS!

Local municipal offices have a great impact on our day-to-day lives.  Have you ever thought of running for your local school board, village board, or another position?  You can make a difference. 

Now is the time to act.  The general election for municipal offices is April 2, 2019, which means that the petition signature season is almost upon us.  First date to start collecting petition signatures (depending on the position) is August 27 (for positions that have a primary on February 26, 2019) and September 18 (for positions that have no primary). 

If you are interested in running for an office, contact Kim Savage at kim@kimsavage.org .

The 2019 State of Illinois Candidates Guide, available at  https://www.elections.il.gov/Downloads/ElectionInformation/PDF/2019CanGuide.pdf, has loads of good information about local government positions and elections, including qualifications for office, terms of office, and filing procedures and deadlines.

For your consideration, here are the municipal positions & school district seats that will be open in your area in 2019. Be the Change!!
