Bettering our communities 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.

Taste Food and Wine

Taste Food and Wine

Taste Food and Wine has one of the most beautiful, romantic atmosphere's I've ever encountered. I can take myself out of Rogers Park and imagine myself in another country, tasting a wine at a vineyard. It has such a unique charm, I can't help but be enamored with the place. The people are very helpful, answering calls and questions non-stop, and assisting you the moment you walk in their door. 

You should attend one of their Wine Tastings to see just how magnificent Taste Food and Wine is. The Wine Tastings go on every Monday and Friday.
