As the election approaches, we need increasing numbers of volunteers who will take candidate literature and sample ballots to the doors of voters in your neighborhood. Please come on in to get the needed materials and discuss where your time can best be spent.
"Early voting" starts Monday, Oct. 24, at the Arlington Heights Village Hall and in Wheeling at the Korean Cultural Center, 9710 Capitol Drive. Check out www.cookcountyclerk.com/earlyvoting for hours and other details. And share this information with neighbors.
We still have applications for "vote-by-mail" ballots at HQ to send them to folks requesting them. Or the forms can be downloaded from the County Clerk's website at www.cookcountyclerk.com/votebymail.
Tomorrow night (Wednesday), the third and final Presidential Debate will be televised starting at 8 p.m., moderated by Fox News Channel's Chris Wallace.
Thursday, Oct. 27, brings an unusual fundraising event in our area. Our now-retired State Senator, Matt Murphy, will be on hand to witness -- and so can you -- the swearing-in of his successor, Rolling Meadows Mayor Tom Rooney, who has been appointed to succeed Matt in the 27th District. It should be quite an occasion and will begin to build the campaign fund Sen. Rooney will need for election to the seat in 2018. $40 per person; RSVP via Tom's website at http://rationallyconservative.com/swearingin.html. The event will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Tap House Grill, 56 W. Wilson, Palatine.
Drop into HQ during office hours (or check whether someone's here -- we're often open longer hours these days) and pick up yard signs, buttons, bumper stickers and candidate literature for your favorite GOP nominees. We also have extra sample ballots available.
If you can devote some of your time between now and November to win this election for America, please volunteer now. We need you.
