Don't Be Surprised in the Voting Booth

voteTake a look at your ballot now, to see what will be there when you go to vote on April 2, 2019. There may not be a national election this time, but the local officials  that we select might impact our lives more than those on the national stage.

I can’t attach your ballot, because even within Warrenville, there are multiple districts at every level of government – each with different boundaries. Just considering Warrenville voters, there are many ballot variations.

Follow the steps, just a few clicks, and enter your address and you'll have the ballot. These instructions are for anyone in DuPage county.

  1. Go to the Voter Information Page on the Dupage County website: https://www.dupageco.org/VoterLookup/
  2. Search By Address
    Click on the "Search by Address" tab
  3. Type your address. Note:the house number includes the numbers and letter (e.g. 28w530). The "Suffix" is your street type (e.g. Street, Road).  It has to match exactly -- for mine Ln works but not Lane. Click Search.
  4. Click to "View Ballot" link.

On this page, you can also see your polling place, all your current elected officials, and what districts you are in.

Finding the ballot is the easy part. Now you have the harder job of deciding how to cast it.

  • In additiona to elected officials, Warrenville ballots include: PROPOSITION TO CREATE A NEW TAX RATE FOR EMERGENCY AND RESCUE FUND PURPOSES that Reads "Shall the Warrenville Fire Protection District, DuPage County, Illinois, be authorized to levy a new tax for emergency and rescue crews and equipment purposes and have an additional tax of .10% of the equalized assessed value of the taxable property therein extended for such purposes?" Don't know what it;s all about --- go to Coffee with the Fire Chief on March 21
  • If you're still looking for nore information, there is  a website ballotready.org. This site has a tab for each candidate on your ballot, along with links to learn their stances on many issues and a newsfeed of artices printed about them.  This is not an official ballot, and does not contain all the local items.

Happy Voting!.
