45th Ward residents 14-years-old and up will have the opportunity to vote in the 2019 Participatory Budgeting cycle beginning on Monday, October 1. Participatory budgeting is a democratic system that empowers people in determining how their tax dollars are spent.

Online Voting

For those wishing to vote online, simply fill out an online registration form beginning October 1 at 9 am. Once received, a 45th Ward staff member will respond with the voting site link and a special access code to allow you to vote. Please do not share your code with anyone else; your code is unique and may be used only once. Please note that this is not an automated system; rather, office employees will be verifying the information. This may result in a delay from the time you submit the registration form to when you receive the one-time code.
