Do you know that you have to choose a Democrat, Republican, or Nonpartisan ballot for the Primary Election on March 20?

Do you know which offices will be on your ballot and which candidates are running for those offices?

You can find a Sample Ballot on the DuPage Election Commission website. Click here: https://www.dupageco.org/DistrictLookup/. Use the Search by Address function. Fill in your address and click on Search. On the page that comes up, you can view your Sample Ballot - after you choose your Party (D, NP, or R).

In some races there is little or no competition. In other cases, such as Democratic candidates for Governor, there are 6 choices. How do you know who you should vote for? Try this:

The League of Women Voters of Illinois partnered with ABC7 and Univision to hold a candidate debate with all the candidates for the Democratic Primary for Governor. You can watch the 60-minute commercial-free recording here: 

Note: The same offer was made to Republican candidates for Governor. However, Gov. Rauner's campaign said the only debate in which he would participate was with the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board.
