The Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce believes it is important that Chamber members exercise their right to vote. The chamber also believes it is important that chamber members be informed voters, particularly when it comes to issues that can affect the local business environment. With that in mind, the chamber sent a questionnaire to candidates for the City of Pekin races. The candidates' answers to those questions are available online at: http://www.pekinchamber.com/Candidates2015/candidates.html
The City of Pekin will elect a Mayor and three City Councilpersons this spring. The April 7th ballot will also include candidates for the Pekin Park District Board of Commissioners and the District 108 and 303 School Boards.
Information about voter registration, absentee ballots, early voting, polling locations, etc., is available from the Tazewell County Voter Registration department at 477-2267.
