Notes for Consolidated Elections (Local, odd years)

Board of Education elections are very tough elections, with very low turn out, even though schools are the largest portion of your property tax bill and the Board makes decisions directly affecting students. Whether you have children currently in the schools or not, these elections MATTER to your household financially and otherwise - our schools are creating the next generation of leaders. – D211 Parents for Privacy

2019 Consolidated election schedule

It seems that election season never ends.  Many of us are helping our favorite candidate’s campaign for the November 6th 2018 general election.  But, this fall it is time to find candidates for all the local elected officials.

  • Petitions are filed between: November 19, 2018 and November 26, 2018
  • CONSOLIDATED PRIMARY: February 26, 2019

Citizen Participation Institute

The Citizen Participation Institue has created a set of on-line tools and guidebooks to assist citizens who are contemplating a run for local office.  The web page is: http://www.citizenparticipation.org/ Take a look now.  It is a combination of civics tutorial and detailed how-to information.

Once, petition signatures can be collected, a tool that accepts your input (name, address, office sought, etc) will become available.  It will create custom forms for you to print.

Here in Villa Park, York Township, Precinct 72, my recommendation is to vote straight republican so we can get Trump's agenda going and avoid two years of hateful impeachment hearings and stalled growth.

WE NEED JAY KINZLER AS OUR REPRESENTATIVE IN DISTRICT 46 AND SENATE REPRESENTATION OF SETH LEWIS IN SENATE DISTRICT 23 SO WE CAN HAVE A VOICE. , VOTE FOR JAMES MENDRICK FOR DUPAGE COUNTY SHERIFF ALSO.

Vote yes on all referendums to oppose more taxes.

I am voting a straight Republican ticket. 

Comment by Jeff Cooper on November 4, 2018 at 9:53pm

My endorsements to my constituents in Milton Township 26 were for all the Republican candidates, except Bruce Rauner, Erica Harold and Dan Cronin.. I did personally vote for them all as their opponents in all 3 races were pathetic, but they didn't deserve my endorsement.

I voted no for the judge retention candidates, it's a habit of mine.

I salute any West Suburban Patriot members/participants that serve as precinct committeemen or election judges. 

Comment by Carol D on November 4, 2018 at 9:33pm

These are my picks for Wayne Township 054: I'm voting a STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN ticket this election cycle. I have REAL ISSUES with some of the Republican candidates, HOWEVER the Left (Democrats) are trying to destroy this state and the nation so NONE of their candidates are an option for me.

For Judicial Retention: YES to retain Robert D. McLaren, NO to retain Patrick O'Shea

For the 3 Propositions on our ballots: I recommend YES for all 3.

After two referendums were rejected by taxpayers, District 200 planned to borrow and build a new Jefferson preschool without taxpayer approval.  However, due to a lawsuit, the District was forced to place another referendum on the ballot.

 

The ballot question is: 

 

Shall the Board of Education of Wheaton Warrenville Community Unit School District Number 200, DuPage County, Illinois, build and equip a new early childhood center without levying a separate, special property tax to finance the costs thereof?

From the Daily Herald:

"No one is allowed to attempt to influence a voter within 100 feet of the polling place, among other rules. On Tuesday, any suspicious or illegal activity can be reported to the Illinois attorney general's office at (866) 536-3496."
