Thinking of running for elective office in Oak Park or the western suburbs in the election set for April 2, 2019? Well, all prospective candidates can get a tutorial on what it takes to get your name on the ballot at a forum by the local intergovernmental group iGOV at 7 p.m. on Oct. 17 at Percy Julian Middle School, 416 S. Ridgeland Ave.

The event will include a presentation by the Citizens Advocacy Center. "They will not offer legal advice per se, but will point you in the right direction of where to find the necessary documentation to begin your candidacy," an iGOV press release states.

The two-hour forum will be followed by a panel of six board members from each governmental body in the village to discuss topics such as "what it is like to get on the ballot," as well as sharing their experiences of being an elected official in Oak Park.
