Illinois Voter's Guide - LWV IL Voter's Guide is now active.  The guide allows voters to access the bio and website of all the 2020 candidates across the state. Voters can also create their own ballot, sign up for voting reminders, find their polling place and register to vote, if necessary. Share the Voter's Guide Link with everyone you know because our mission is to educate citizens to become informed voters. We need all members to help achieve this mission!

Just a reminder to check out the Great Decisions calendar of issues and meeting dates at the bottom of our website's Events and Programs page.
