Canvassing and Absentee Ballots in the 46th Ward

Michael Carroll's 46th Ward Aldermanic Campaign is getting ready for its first major canvass of of the new year. They invite you to help out by volunteering for a two or three hour shift on Saturday, January 15. (Also, please consider a making donation to Michael Carroll's campaign, even if it's only $5.00. Every bit helps!) The campaign provides more details about Saturday's canvassing and absentee ballots: The first opportunity to apply for absentee ballots begins Thursday, January 13, so we want to begin reaching voters in the 46th Ward as they decide who their next Alderman will be. We will be making calls at the office and going door-to-door in key neighborhoods to reach voters and let them know about my background and plans to reduce crime, create jobs, and improve our neighborhoods. The canvassing begins at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 15 at our campaign headquarters (4700 N. Sheridan Rd.) and will last until 4 p.m. If you would like to learn more about the canvassing crew, please contact us at or call us at 773-627-1410. Any amount of time that you can give to the campaign is greatly appreciated as we sprint toward Election Day. Please volunteer to help the campaign or request a yard or window sign, you can do so easily by signing up online today. We will have canvassing and call shifts during the week and every weekend through Election Day. This year, you also no longer need an excuse to vote absentee. We have more information on how to sign up for an absentee ballot on our website. While there, you can also find an interactive Ward map and other information on registration and early voting under our new Community section.
