Plan now to attend our next monthly meeting at 8:30 a.m. here at HQ. Our program for Saturday, Oct. 8: Congressman Robert Dold (10th) and 9th District GOP Congressional nominee Joan Lasonde. It should be a good meeting to bring neighbors and other friends and help build our volunteer corps.
We are working on getting our sample ballot printed and will soon be asking for volunteers to collate candidate literature and sample ballots into doorknob-hanger bags for our precinct captains. Please come in when we send up the call ... many hands make light work!
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.
Did you watch the debate Monday night? Next Tuesday brings the vice presidential debate featuring Mike Pence v. Hillary's choice.
Can you serve as a trained, paid election judge on Nov. 8? We need judges! Please book it in your calendar and go to the county clerk's website to apply: www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/electionjudges/Pages/default.aspx.
Two fundraising events next week for GOP nominees from Wheeling Township, both on Thursday, Oct. 6. From 5 to 7 p.m., a reception for Steven Kozicki for Judge will be hosted by the law office of Judge, James, Hoban & Fisher at 422 N. Northwest Hwy., Park Ridge. Same night from 6 to 8 p.m., LaTasca Tapas Restaurant at 25 W. Davis, Arlington Heights, will be the site of a reception for State Rep. David Harris. Mark your calendar now.
Applications for "vote-by-mail" ballots are available at HQ; we'll send them out to folks requesting them. Or the forms can be downloaded from the County Clerk's website at www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/mailvoting/Pages/default.aspx.
For information about in-person "early voting," check out www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/earlyvoting/Pages/default.aspx. The County Clerk has added a location in Wheeling this year to the traditional site in the Arlington Heights Village Hall.
