The next Consolidated Municipal Election is Tuesday, April 6. Let the Oak Park-River Forest League of Women Voters help you do your voting homework on candidates running for elected positions in our village.
This series of local candidate forums was co-hosted by the library and the league, a grassroots non-partisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. The league works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy. While the league does not endorse candidates it does take positions on issues.
