Through a new nonpartisan campaign, Illinois Farm Bureau is encouraging members to vote Nov. 6 in the general election.
The goal of the “My Vote My Future” campaign is to mobilize Illinois farmers who aren’t registered to register by Oct. 9 and to encourage all farmers to vote in the Nov. 6 election. To highlight the campaign, a new video with Farm Bureau members and others has been posted online at www.ilfb.org/vote
The website also offers links to help viewers find their local election authority, stay informed on election deadlines, and locate their districts and their candidates -- especially important with this year’s new legislative districts.
County Farm Bureaus also have received related information and materials to assist with local promotions and activities that encourage members to vote.
One of the first election deadlines is Sept. 27, which is the first day to apply for an absentee ballot.
