It’s stupid of me to wait until the last second to really research local elections, so please forgive me. I’m finding some interesting information over at Chicagoist and ArchPundit. If you’re looking for recommendations on judicial voting, you may want to try the Chicago Council of Lawyers, but there are others.
One of the issues on our local ballot will be the expansion of Lake Shore Drive through our neighborhood. Now, on the one hand, getting to and from this area of the city is a pain in the butt — it takes at least an hour to drive our friends’ houses in the western suburbs. However, I have a feeling that any expansion may go right through our house — that would be kind of problematic. I haven’t yet seen a lot on the pro side, but the anti side has been pretty active. The have a website and are encouraging us to vote “No” to the Lakefront Referendum.
