Good evening,

Engaging in our democracy is the responsible of all citizens, in particular when participating in local and regional elections that have a direct impact on the life of our campus and you, our students. 

As with the mid-term elections this past November, we call on each of you to be a participant of civic engagement by voting in the upcoming Illinois Consolidated General Election, Tuesday, April 2, 2019. Each county in the state will hold elections for local, district, and township positions.  Information on the state’s elections is found at

For students registered to vote in Champaign County, local positions such as Champaign Mayor, Champaign County Board Council Members, Champaign and Urbana School Board, Parkland Community College Board, and Park District Commissioners to name a few,  will be on the ballot for election. Students who live on-campus, may be able to vote at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) 201 East Peabody Drive,  or the Illini Union, 1401 W. Green Street. You can find your polling location at, and additional information about candidates and their positions can be found at

Again, we all make a difference when we participate in shaping our community. Civic engagement is one way to participate in our university mission and influence our current and future landscape. As members of the Illini community, we encourage you to take a moment to reflect, engage, and vote! 

With Illini pride,

Dr. Danita M. B. Young
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
