Voting in governmental elections is not just a citizen's right and duty but also an opportunity to support candidates that share your values. This has never been more important than now, when the two corporate parties increasingly present candidates who are billionaires, multi-millionaires, persons of dubious moral character, and/or persons who simply do not share your values.
SUPPORT YOUR VALUES by registering to vote, or checking that you are properly registered, and then vote for RANDY AUXIER FOR CONGRESS. If your schedule or military/overseas service prevents you from voting on the primary and general election days, then vote early at the court house, or with an absentee ballot, respectively. Surprisingly, only a small portion of the adult population actually votes, so we are represented by this small sector. Change this, vote, and then further participate in the government process in your community.
Make sure you're registered to vote for the November 6, 2018 general election. Most people register before the regular deadline 27 days before the election, but there is also a grace period after that if done in person at certain locations.

Voter information may be available on the following county websites in the Illinois 12th District (below). However, some only provide county clerk contact information, while the more central and northwestern counties include information on how to register, early voting directions, and where the polling places are to vote. The state of Illinois also provides an election authority lookup by county here.
