Early Voting in all 50 Chicago Wards Begins Tomorrow, GCNA Annual Meeting Next Monday, Flu Shot Reminders, and more

Dear Neighbor,

Tomorrow, October 14th, marks the beginning of early voting sites opening across all 50 wards in Chicago. All ward-specific sites will be open Monday-Friday: 8:30 am - 7 pm, and Saturday-Sunday: 9 am - 5 pm. If you are not voting by mail, the best way to avoid the crowds and ensure proper social distancing this election year is to vote early! If, like me, you are voting by mail, you can also submit your ballot in a secure dropbox at any of the early voting sites. See below for a full list of early voting sites in the 12th District:

  • Ward 2 - Ogden Elementary School (24 W Walton St)
  • Ward 43 - Lincoln Park High School (2001 N Orchard St)
  • Ward 44 - InterAmerican Elementary School (851 W Waveland Ave)
  • Ward 46 - Truman College (1145 W Wilson)
