No meeting this Saturday ... it's time to walk! Little by little, we are surely moving toward walkable weather!
Our precinct captains' bags are stuffed and ready to go, so if you are a captain, please come in and get your bag during office hours (listed below). Your voters are waiting! And some of them are voting already.
Early voting has begun; the closest location to most of us is Arlington Heights Village Hall, 33 S. Arlington Heights Road (@ Sigwalt). Hours there are Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The last day for early voting is Saturday, March 15.
Mail balloting is also available to all registered voters (expanding the old "absentee" balloting system). Mail ballot applications can be downloaded from the County Clerk's website at http://www.cookctyclerk.com/elections/DocumentLibrary/Mail%20Ballot%20Application%20-%20031814%20-%20English.pdf.
If you know a Republican who needs to register, please ask him or her to call us at 847/632-1774 to learn about "grace-period registration" (or check out the County Clerk's website at http://www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/registertovote/Pages/GracePeriod.aspx)
(If you are not a captain but you are willing to cover a few blocks for us, please get in touch right away. We need your help!)
We offer our condolences to State Rep. Tom Morrison and his family on the passing of his father, Roger Morrison. RIP.
