You can go to Truman College (1145 West Wilson), 19th District Police Station (850 West Addison), Welles Park (2333 West Sunnyside), Edgewater Library (6000 North Broadway), or any early voting site in the city.


  1. I voted early and I would vote often if I could get away with it.

    Early voting is so much easier. Election judges know what they're doing. No line. In and out.

    Now I know you're all thinking did I vote for the Capplemaniac?

    Of course I did.

    Why would I toss my "brand" away after 15 years of Uptown trolling for a earnest and well meaning ginger nerd who's lived here for a whole three years? When I can choose a wiser earnest and well meaning graying nerd who's lived here for twenty years and has 8 years of experience making Uptown better.

    The choice is simple.

    Speaking of simple the Uptown UpLifting site at Facebook has an interesting link. Some rascals are taking on Marianne. Site is called WHY MARIANNE and is amusing.

    So far it's been focusing on Marianne's campaign trying to kick Angela Clay off ballot.

    People are speculating who's behind it.

    Well it AINT me.

    There are a number of possibilities.

    1. Space aliens hired by the illuminatti.

    2. My mom, but the last time she had anything to do with the phrase "Go Daddy" my younger brother Sven was conceived.

    3. Cappleman's campaign. He denied it though in comments.

    4. Some troll, not me, who supports Cappleman. Hey I'm not the ONLY troll in Uptown. I'm just the funniest.

    5. Some pissed off Clay supporter.

    6. Some pissed off Wozniak supporter who hopes Marianne loses so their candidate can run again in 2023. This would also apply to Clay supporters.

    I'd put my money on one of the 4-6 choices.

    I could be wrong though. I assumed it was the Wozniak campaign that challenged Clay's petitions because it made little sense for the ginger menace to do it. My semi informed guess is that Clay supporters would be more likely to support Wozniak than Clay if she hadn't been on ballot.

    I guess like my childhood Catholic Church I'll just have to chalk it up to a mystery.

    There is one other possibility.

    It's actually Lala's campaign and they plan to put some outrageous stuff on there in the coming week and make it look like it was from Cappleman. That's the kind of evil stuff my evil twin Skippy might pull and I doubt the Lala campaign is that creative. It would be a sneaky ass move though, but if it is I just took the winds out of their sails.

  2. I'm sitting this one out. I don't like either candidate. Neither has "clout" the way that Rahm and Daly had. They don't know anybody of importance who can help the city and bring the business to the city. Both of them will spend most of their time trying to appease the south and west siders. Those are just my thoughts.
