🌟We bet you’ve heard of this one. It’s a pretty big job and you’ve got 14 candidates to choose from. The Mayor is the Chief Executive of the City of Chicago. Signing in laws and ordinances is big part of the gig, but the Mayor’s office also oversees a bunch of offices and programs throughout the city giving the office influence on everything from sustainability to affordable housing. The Mayor also appoints a bunch of leadership positions for city departments and services. It’s a 4 year term with no term limits. Check out chi.vote to research the candidates! .

🏘Pro tip: Alderman and City Council Member mean the same thing. The City Council is Chicago’s primary legislative body. It’s made up of 50 members from different wards all across the city. They are responsible for the city budget, taxes, and passing city laws and policies. Check out who is running in your ward on chi.vote! There’s some hot races, and these people can have a big impact on your community. .

💵The Office of the City Treasurer manages the money and investments for the City of Chicago, and also provides financial education programming and small business support to Chicagoans. If you are a City of Chicago employee or a Chicago Public Schools teacher, the City Treasurer’s office also oversees your pension fund. . 📎For some, “City Clerk” may conjure images of miles of filing cabinets, and indeed, the Clerk’s office has many important responsibilities related to record-keeping. In addition to maintaining the City’s records and elections, the Clerk serves as Secretary for City Council meetings. The day-to-day operations of the Clerk’s office affect most Chicagoans in a variety of ways: the office distributes “City Stickers” and residential parking permits, as well as business licenses. .

👍 Feb 26 is Election Day, but did you know you can vote before then??? Early voting is totally a thing and open across Chicago. And you don’t even have to go your polling place. Find the place easiest for you and cast that early ballot. .
