Thank you Bruce. I don't mind educating people on energy issues but believe this heavy handed way method is out of line. The Green Party has a lot to offer but would prefer they act more like libertarians on such issues.

The West Side Greens, a local of the Green Party, proposed the following: "Shall those companies that wish to drill for or supply natural gas derived from hydraulic Fracking be required to inform residents of OP Township of the hazardous chemicals and risks in the process and be prohibited from supplying natural gas derived from hydraulic fracking to Oak Park Township customers". This advisory referendum also serves as an educational tool.

These two local referenda are submitted by the Township, based on a citizen proposal. More information about them may be available at their office, 383-8005.

Thanks Teresa. Who (specific person) proposed the "Oak Park Township, Natural Gas" and "Oak Park Township, Amend Constitution" referendum questions?

For a sample ballot: www.cookcountyclerk.com Left sidebar My Voter Information: Enter name, address and you can print sample ballot and referenda questions. Today machines are working, the County has twice as many judges, all moving smoothly.

Is there any place online where we can see what the ballot in Oak Park looks like? Are there any referendums on the ballot?

I wanted to vote early, but, heeding the old Illinois Bell tag line, "wise men phone first," I called the Village Clerk's office first. Voting had started, come on over. Arrive by bicycle about 30 minutes later. The scanners weren't working, so it took about an hour to vote. By the time I voted, it had started raining. Rode home in the rain. Do these VOP bureaucrats have so little disregard for taxpayers, they can't say, heh, we're slow due to some machine problems?

My father was a staunch conservative and voted straight line Republican until the day he died. Now, he votes Democrat.
