Politically inspired by the debates last night? Want to make sure that every vote counts? You can train as a pollwatcher. The League of Women Voters of Chicago and i am the government are offering free training for those interested in becoming pollwatchers on November 2nd. You can watch the polls in your neighborhood, ward, suburb, or travel all around the state on election day to keep an eye on democracy for an hour, or all day long. Training sessions last just a couple of hours, and one happens tonight from 68 p.m. at the LWV offices downtown or there are others throughout October.
