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.
