The League of Women Voters (LWV) Arlington Heights-Mount Prospect-Buffalo Grove-Wheeling-Prospect Heights-Elk Grove Village is hosting several programs to Get Out the Vote.
This Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 9am is “Ready to Run” a program to help community members run for local office. At Noon on Wednesday, October 14, LWV is partnering with the Northwest Suburban Bar Association for “Voter Eligibility and Voter Protection for Illinois & Wisconsin.” The following evening, Thursday October 15 from 6:30-7:15 LWV is hosting a forum for candidates in the 12th and 13th Sub-Circuits for Cook County. Finally, the LWV Environmental Team will be hosting another event in the “Anger to Action” series: Taking Action for Your Environment outlining CEJA (Clean Energy Jobs Act) and other legislation poised to combat climate change.
All programs are free and open to the public.
Contested elections are the cornerstone of our Democracy yet many of our local offices are uncontested. LWV proposes, “We need YOU to run for office and we want to help make that happen.” The “Ready to Run” program “will feature people, just like you, who have run for office or have worked on campaigns to illuminate the process and convince you the time to serve your community is NOW,” according to LWV.
LWV emphasizes that all of our communities have open offices at almost every level: Village Board, City Council, School Board, Park Board, Library Board. LWV urges citizens to “take your seat at the table or learn how you can help your neighbor take the leap into local governance,” and REGISTER IN ADVANCE.
The LWV host for the program is Prospect High School Sophomore LWV-AH-MP-BG Emerging Leader Lucy Neacy, and our moderator is Prospect High School Junior and LWV-AH-MP-BG Emerging Leader Maya Kusolovic.
On Wednesday, October 14 (Noon) LWV is co-hosting the following program with the Northwest Suburban Bar Association.
