IMPORTANT: Your NOW membership must be current to be eligible to vote. Check your NOW membership card. If your membership has expired, DON’T PANIC! Because of a snafu by natl. NOW in sending out membership renewal notices via snail mail last year, you can renew your NOW membership ONLINE by June 24 and be considered eligible to vote. NOW also offers a sliding scale rate.
Don’t forget the legislative report: We have a MOUNTAIN of state and federal legislation to discuss. Bills to lobby on, bills to contact Governor Pritzker about, you know the drill. The good, bad and the ugly of this Spring session.
