  • Mollie's War presented by Cyndee Schaffer

    Tuesday, November 1st at 6:30 PM

    Why did an average American woman become a
    WAC (Women’s Army Corps) during World War II
    and place herself in peril?

    Authors Cyndee Schaffer and Mollie Weinstein Schaffer,
    answer this question and more in the book, Mollie’s War,
    a story woven around the collection of letters that Mollie
    wrote home to her family during WWII along with historical
    commentary concurrent with the letters.
    It took many letters home, sharing everything from daily
    challenges to exciting experiences (when the censors allowed)
    for her story, Mollie’s War to emerge.  Mollie’s story documents
    the human side of life during the war- a life that alternates
    between fear, romance, exhaustion, and leisure.
    Mollie’s daughter, Cyndee Schaffer, will be at Bridgeview Public Library
    on November 1st at 6:30PM to share her mother’s story.

  • Upcoming Voting Dates and Details

    Good afternoon,
    With Election Day just around the corner, this e-mail is to remind you of upcoming voting dates and details.

    First, voters may cast their ballots early beginning October 24. That is the date to begin an early voting campaign. Suburban Cook County Early Voting sites have been expanded from 43 to 52. To accommodate the anticipated high demand, each site will also have more equipment and staff.

    Grace Period registration and voting extends the registration period by allowing unregistered voters to register and vote until Monday, November 7.  Grace period begins Oct. 12 at our downtown office and at our five suburban offices. Individuals wishing to vote during the grace period must bring two pieces of identification to register. One of these two forms of ID must list the voter's current address.  

    Early Voting and Grace Period voting hours and locations can be found here.

    Any registered suburban Cook County voter may also request a mail ballot. Applying to vote by mail online can take less than a minute. More information on voting by mail can be found here.

    Please continue to check our website at: www.cookcountyclerk.com for continuous updates.
