The League is dedicated to informing voters about issues that affect residents. We have asked all candidates for city wide offices and aldermanic seats to respond to questions about issues that are now of concern to residents of Chicago. Candidates' responses can be found here.
Co-sponsored by LWV Chicago, WTTW's Video Voters' Guide invites all candidates for Chicago office to film two-minute videos about their candidacy at WTTW studios.
