[ARCHIVED] Electoral Referendums Meeting, Sept. 11

District Mapping Basics Seminar

The Village of Skokie invites community members to attend a second public meeting to review and provide feedback on draft plans to implement three citizen-initiated referendums impacting Skokie Village Board elections, which were approved by voters in November 2022.

On August 14, the Village held an initial public seminar to provide an overview of the three referendums, which changed Skokie Village Board elections to non-partisan, staggered terms for elected officials, and established hybrid representation through the creation of four geographic districts represented by one trustee each and two at-large trustee representatives. The meeting included information about the election district mapping process and the laws governing district mapping, as well as provided an opportunity for community members to provide initial feedback.

At the next meeting, the Village’s mapping consultant, Peter A. Creticos, Ph.D., and attorneys Jason Guisinger and Scott Uhler from Klein, Thorpe & Jenkins (KTJ), the legal firm assisting the Village in implementing the referendums in compliance with state election law, will present a draft implementation plan and draft electoral district maps inclusive of the public feedback the Village has received so far. The meeting will take place:

Monday, September 11, 7 p.m.
Skokie Public Library, Petty Auditorium
5215 Oakton St., Skokie

A meeting agenda and materials, including draft electoral district maps and implementation plans for the three referendums, are available at Web page information can be translated into more than 100 languages using the Google Translate "select language" tool at the bottom of the page.
