Build Your Vote is back to help you fill out your ballot for the Chicago municipal elections. In February, you’ll be voting for mayor, alderman, city clerk, and city treasurer. There’s tons of candidates on the ballot, and if you’re confused about the logistics of voting, or where to find information on candidates, you’re not alone! We believe everything is better when you do it with and for community (and with delicious food!) South Side Weekly is here to help you navigate these complicated elections. And Build Coffee is here to fill your belly while we’re at it.

Please join us for a pay-what-you-can dinner, where writers and editors from the Weekly will present you with information on the aldermanic race in your ward and answer your questions about the election. Then we’ll break into small groups to help each other research candidates and fill out our ballots, using the Better Government Association’s Chi.Vote tool.

Register below and bring a laptop, if you have one. We’ll have hearty vegetarian soup, fresh bread, and beverages available by suggested donation. Come hungry and curious!
