As you know, the elected school board referendum was on the ballot in 327 precincts across the city on November 6th and voters resoundingly said they want an elected board. 87% of people who had the chance to vote said yes to an elected board.
Below is a spreadsheet with the results of the vote and you can see that people from Altgeld Gardens and Beverly to Rogers Park, Lincoln Park and Uptown had this on their ballot.
The next step is to contact legislators and tell them your viewpoint on this issue as any changes to the BOE would need to be made through Springfield. Raise Your Hand will be traveling to Springfield with CODE (Communities Organized for Democracy in Education) on December 5th. Please let us know if you're interested in attending! Email us if you can attend: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can't attend, contact your legislators and tell them your opinion. You can find your legislators here: http://www.elections.il.gov/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddr...
