The Chicago Elections Project

Chi Elect is a new initiative that focuses on the upcoming 2019 Chicago elections. Chi Elect will offer UChicago students the opportunity to get involved in the historic 2019 municipal elections. Through a series of public programs, a resident Winter Quarter Fellow, civic engagement opportunities, and internship opportunities, students will have the chance to deep dive into the candidates and issues shaping the election, all while gaining hands-on experience via volunteer or paid campaign work, non-campaign political work, and local journalism. Whether it's working on a campaign, covering one for a news outlet, going on city treks, or participating in seminars with candidates, don't miss out on the chance to explore the races that will shape this city's future for years to come!
