Important ‘Voter Guide’ Goes to 1.1 million Households

 Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsThe Chicago Election Board announced that more than 1 million voter households will begin receiving important “Voter Guide” mailings that list a nearby Early Voting site, the location of the November 6th precinct polling place with the new ward and precinct designations.

“With so few undecided voters, all signs point to strong Early Voting turnout, which makes this mailing especially important for the hundreds of thousands we expect to use that option,” said Chicago Election Board Chairman Langdon D. Neal. “Just as important, this mailing will present to voters their new ward and precinct designations and whether their polling place has changed.” Neal said that the mailing covers important information, including:

    (1) Information on the Polling Place for Election Day for the Precinct where the household is located.

    (2) Early Voting information. Chicago voters may use any of the city’s 51 Early Voting sites. The mailing includes the site in the ward of that household and its hours. Because of the ward boundary shifts, 11 new sites will be in use for Early Voting.
    (3) How on Election Day, voters will use two paper ballots. One will list the candidates, and the second will include a proposed Amendment to the Illinois Constitution related to pensions.

The distinctive red-white-and-blue mail pieces carry the Postal Service’s “Official Election Mail” logo. Information also is available at or by calling (312) 269-7900.
