Bettering our Community with our Votes

I Voted Bill Morton, registered voter in the 49th Ward

It is important to be a registered voter and vote in every election.

Voting is a way to speak your mind and let your voice be heard!

Your vote is your voice.

When we vote, we are actually telling elected officials and lawmakers how we feel about education, public safety, social security, health care, and other important issues.

 •One voice, one vote really does count!

Remember: there is power in numbers, and when we vote and get our family members to vote, we can truly make a difference. If you don’t vote for what you believe in, others will – and you may not like the outcome.

Because our children can’t vote, we have to do it for them.

Our children are depending on us to represent their voices too! When we vote, we are looking out for our kids, and their futures.

Voting changes communities!

That’s how we make our concerns about schools, safety, housing, and other issues heard.

Because your activism, including in reforming the system, will be more powerful if you have voted.

Because your monitoring of the fairness of the election must begin with voting in it.

Touhy Avenue - West Ridge's Story

Touhy Avenue

As the sun descended, this Word 49 writer, along with fellow writer and photographer Bill Morton, decided to see what we could on the West Ridge side of Touhy. We have a few photos of some desperately in need of assistance places, but West Ridge was another Story. We saw active businesses with a lot of information to be had. Take advantage and go see these places for yourself!
