From Liz Bradner: As voters we need to decide who will do the best job for us right here in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. Whether we are concerned about the economy, the environment or health care, we need to inform ourselves about the candidates for county office, state representative, governor, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
The League of Women Voters has made it easy: go to Vote411.org to find information on the statewide candidates and their positions on critical issues. Go to LWVIL.org to find information on local candidates for the U.S. House and the Illinois House of Representatives. Then either early or on Tuesday November 4, vote! You can help decide what change will occur. All citizens have an equal say on issues and priorities that matter most. It’s our civic duty to make democracy work. We can do better than the 51% participation in Lake County in the last midterm election of 2012. Liz Bradner Co-president League of Women Voters of Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Area
