In local elections (particularly mid-term local elections), EVERY vote truly counts. That is not just a cliché. In the last District 113 School Board election, the winning margin was a mere eleven votes.
This means that EVERY vote truly matters. The people that you elect in local elections will be entrusted to make important decisions that will directly impact your schools, parks, local government…and your property taxes. This is your chance to be heard and to directly frame meaningful changes that you want to see in your community. Do not sit on the sidelines–VOTE!
And if you feel strongly about a candidate or an issue, then take it upon yourself to encourage others—your spouse, your neighbors, your friends, your parents, your co-workers and even your kids (18 yrs.+)– to also vote. Everyone should VOTE!
Voting could not be easier.
Early voting begins on March 20, 2017–exactly one week from today—and it will continue for two weeks, until April 1st. All early voting is at the Highland Park Police Station (1677 Old Deerfield Rd.) from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, and from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday.
If you prefer the old fashioned way, Election Day is April 4, 2017 at your traditional polling place.
Snowbirds and kids at college can vote by mail (but you need to request a ballot soon). https://spathisd113.com/2017/02/22/hey-snowbirds-and-recent-grads-you-can-vote/?iframe=true&theme_preview=true. There simply is no excuse not to VOTE!
Regardless of who you support–although I certainly hope that you would chose to cast a vote for me—PLEASE VOTE.
