Local 73 Municipal Election Endorsements – Vote April 6


We had tremendous success in the 2020 election because Local 73 members registered and voted. The 2021 elections are just as important. Elected candidates who support our issues at the local level have a direct impact on collective bargaining and other issues important to our work and our families.

SEIU Local 73’s Political Engagement Committee (PEC) is pleased to announce our endorsements for 2021 Illinois municipal elections.
