New Feature



WTTW’s 2019 Chicago Voters’ Guide is an online resource designed to inform voters about the candidates running for office in the Feb. 26 election. Candidates were given two minutes to tell voters where they stand on the issues, why they feel they are best qualified and what they intend to do if elected or re-elected. The messages were recorded at the WTTW studios at no cost to the candidates. The Voters’ Guide was produced with help from the League of Women Voters of Chicago.
