VOTE Lake Bluff is an open, non-partisan, volunteer committee of Lake Bluff/unincorporated Lake Bluff residents organized to recruit and identify candidates for positions of trust and responsibility on local boards, including the Village Board of Trustees, Village President, Village Clerk, Library Board of Trustees, Park Board and both the District 65 and District 115 School Boards. All registered voters within the relevant districts will be invited to participate in town-meeting style interviews. VOTE Lake Bluff will support the candidates selected by the attendees through a vote-by-ballot process.

The group’s administrative committee will seek input from each of the 5 boards via a survey to determine issues of concern, and then develop candidate interview questions based on the survey results. Please refer to the "ISSUES" tab to review the survey results.

Note: Traditionally the Lake Bluff School Caucus (now merged with VOTE Lake Bluff) and the Lake Forest Caucus have worked together to fill vacancies on the D115 School Board through an informal agreement that 2 out of 7 total D115 School Board positions would be filled by Lake Bluff /  Knollwood / Unincorporated Lake Bluff residents.

The April 4th, 2017 election results are in! The candidates selected at both the December 6th & 7th 2016 Town Meetings were elected on April 4, 2017, by you, the voters, to serve our community. VOTE Lake Bluff is thankful to all who voted and participated in the process of recruiting and electing candidates for positions of trust and responsibility on our 5 local boards.

Dear Lake Bluff/Knollwood friend:     NEW VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Our “welcome” administrative committee meeting is WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, at 7:00 p.m., in the Spruth Room at the Lake Bluff Library. It’s time to start planning for the next Town Meetings to be held this December 4th and 5th for the April 2, 2019 Consolidated General Election.

Some of you had indicated that you were interested in helping VOTE Lake Bluff for future elections, or you previously volunteered for VOTE or the Lake Bluff School Caucus. Either way, we want to let you know that VOTE Lake Bluff is hoping some of you will help us prepare.

Please join us at the March 14th welcome meeting! You will learn what we do on the committee, what we have yet to do to get ready for the December town meetings, and what you can do to help. The time commitment is minimal, but the payback great when our town has a meeting open to all, with the opportunity to hear directly from candidates for our local boards.

If you are interested in our community and would like to volunteer, we look forward to seeing you then!
