So I figured since I’m voting for President this year, I might as well try to become a little bit educated about the local stuff on the ballot as well. Only, google no helpy. I did find a site for:
which took me all of 5 minutes to read through the 3 or 4 positions that actually have more than one candidate, so yay. But nothing on referendums, and I know there’s at least one School Board referendum that Mom wants me to vote no to (something about taking away teacher’s pensions?), but I’d like to find out more about it, and if there’s anything else I should know about before showing up on the 4th.
I’ve avoided voting nearly every year because I think an uininformed vote is ethically reprehensible. So anyone have any good information for me? Or for others, in other states?
I’m in Chicago, Illinois, but feel free to link to other cities or states’ local races coming up. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’d like to learn more.
