Due to the ongoing pandemic, VOTE Lake Bluff was unable to sponsor a Town Hall meeting in December as it has in past years. In its place, and as a service to the candidates and the voters, VOTE Lake Bluff invited all Lake Bluff candidates with an opportunity to provide information about their candidacy for its website. The candidate questionnaire and video interview allows each candidate to introduce themselves to voters by providing a brief personal statement and addressing a few short questions dealing with issues facing the individual board for which the candidate is running. In addition, all Lake Bluff candidates were invited to an organized outdoor Petition Signing Event on November 20 and November 21. Our website continues to be updated as additional information is provided by the candidates.
VOTE Lake Bluff, an all-volunteer community organization, requires a sufficient number of volunteers to ensure our operation runs smoothly. How can you participate? Please consider joining our Administrative Committee or any one of many sub-committees. Your time commitment can be minimal, and choice of involvement is up to you. If you are interested in our community and would like to volunteer, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VOTE Lake Bluff is an open, non-partisan, volunteer committee of voters from Lake Bluff and the unincorporated areas of Knollwood and Arden Shores. The purpose of our Town Meetings in December of even numbered years is to identify and support candidates for positions of trust and responsibility on elected boards for our village, library, schools, and park district. All registered voters of these districts are invited to attend, listen to the candidates, and then sign Candidate Nomination Petitions required to be on the April Consolidated Election Ballot in the subsequent odd numbered year. Due to COVID, all Lake Bluff candidates were invited to an organized outdoor Petition Signing Event on November 20 and November 21 for voters to have the opportunity to question the candidates directly and sign the nominating petitions for the candidates of their choice.
