We made it!
Less than six months ago, we launched JCUA Votes with the goal to bring a mobilized and progressive Jewish voice to electoral politics. Today, we reach the culmination of our first-ever campaign season, as Chicagoans take to the polls in an historic runoff election for Mayor and City Council.
JCUA Votes members have been throwing down for Brandon Johnson, Desmon Yancy, Angela Clay, and Lori Torres Whitt, and today is no different. Members have been up since 4:30 am to hit precincts across the city, where we’re canvassing, passing literature, poll watching, and making sure that everyone votes for the progressive leadership that Chicago needs!
Polls close at 7:00 pm tonight. Here’s what you need to do:
Get out there and vote! 🗳️
This election is going to be close, so every vote matters! Find your polling place here. You can register in-person today; remember to bring two forms of ID, one of which shows your current address. Your vote-by-mail ballot must be postmarked by today OR you can drop it at any early vote location. We encourage you to vote before rain and storms arrive this afternoon!
Election Protection volunteers with the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights are helping voters and serving as poll watchers. If you need help or support, please use the 1-866-OUR-VOTE hotline.
To commemorate JCUA Votes’ first-ever election cycle, we created this short video with fun moments from the last four months of the campaign. Check it out to see how far we’ve come together!
