To watch the archives of the National Conventions, visit www.c-span.com and view Convention Hub.

To win President of the United States, a candidate must receive 270 Electoral Votes. Illinois has 20 Electoral Votes.  The C-Span 2012 Electoral College Map is available for the classroom.

Get to know every candidate’s  skill set and qualifications to serve during meet & greet events.

If they are incumbents, pay attention to their attendance and voting records. The citizens you elect will determine public policy and approve budgets. Will they serve your best interests?

We appreciate the time, commitment and financial obligations it takes to petition and run for elected office. That’s why we also urge all voters to become acquainted with the candidates vying to be on the ballot in the General Election on Tues., Nov. 6.

Thanks for doing your homework.

VOTERS! Thanks for paying attention and for being prepared for the General Election.

Be an informed voter on Tues., Nov. 6, 2012.

We’ll be back with updates as they happen.  All the redistricting, petition challenging and ballot appeals  in Illinois have made it very difficult to locate all the candidates and communicate their boundaries. If you find an error in this listing, kindly let us know. Thank you.

To register to vote you must produce two pieces of identification one of which must be a photo ID and the other must show your current address. The last day to register for the General Election on November 6 was October 9.

Voters may register at the Naperville City Clerk’s office located at the Municipal Center at 400 South Eagle St.  Again, the last day to register was October 9. Voter registration will be closed October 10 – November 7, 2012.  Early voting will take place from October 22 – November 3, 2012.  Election Day is November 6.

Meanwhile, hopefuls have lined up to run in DuPage and Will counties, Springfield and Washington, D.C.  Become educated about all candidates on the ballot. Meet candidates when and where they are available. Also, understand candidates can be stretched to the limits trying to meet as many registered voters as possible.  They cannot be everywhere, nor can they attend every public forum during the election season. Sometimes voters have to make the decision to go the distance to meet them, even if it’s to visit their website online. Thanks for paying attention.
