Chicago candidates on active transportation voter guide

With election day three weeks away, we’ve released our 2015 Active Transportation Voter Guide so Chicago voters can learn about the views of candidates in their ward on walking, biking and public transit issues.

The voter guide is composed of responses from mayoral and aldermanic candidates to a questionnaire we sent to all candidates.

In the linked spreadsheets, click on a candidate’s name to view their complete response, including any additional comments they provided to each question.

As a non-partisan 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, Active Trans does not endorse candidates.

This voter guide is an educational resource to inform the general public and candidates for local office about current priorities for improving biking, walking and public transit, as identified by our members, supporters and staff.

We used publicly available contact information and multiple rounds of phone and email outreach to attempt to reach the campaigns of all candidates that will appear on the ballot. Candidates that have yet to respond can still contact us with their responses and we'll update our voter guide.

You can learn more about the city elections taking place on February 24 and how you can vote from the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. Early voting starts Monday February 9.

If you live in the Chicago suburbs, stay tuned to the Active Trans blog for resources that will help you know where candidates stand on active transportation issues in the coming spring election.
