Committee On Political Education

IBEW 21 members have strength in numbers  we must use our strength to win the good pay, retirement security, safe work environments, broad access to quality education for our children and much more. By mobilizing through our get-out-the-vote effort, IBEW 21 members can elect candidates who support and will enact a working families’ agenda so we all can move forward together.

Union Families must register to vote, volunteer to help the friends of Labor and then get out to vote on Election Day.  We do make a difference.  After all of the campaign rhetoric we must elect the candidates who best serve the interests of working people.  We must not let wedge issues divide us. 

IBEW Local 21 supports our friends, those candidates who stand with working families and will punish the enemies of working families.


November 2016 Election Endorsements

The document below is the list of Labor’s endorsed candidates from both sides of the aisle in Illinois and Indiana whom Labor is supporting.  These candidates believe in a strong middle-class and they previously voted to help you with important issues that affect you at work and as union members. 

Print a copy of the endorsements by clicking here.

The candidates were vetted and met the requirements necessary to obtain an endorsement from the unions including the IBEW who are affiliated with the Illinois and Indiana AFL- CIO as well as the Chicago Federation of Labor.

The list also includes some candidates in local elections, judges and ballot referendums.  Please refer to the list when voting.  You can print it and take it to the polls with you on Election Day.

KNOW YOUR VOTER RIGHTS

The right to vote is a cornerstone of our country’s democracy. Ordinary men and women fought—and even died—to gain voting rights and to protect people’s right to vote without intimidation or obstruction. Yet states across the country continue to pass restrictive voter ID and voter suppression laws. These attempts to reduce access to the polls and make citizens meet unnecessary requirements for voting should be seen as nothing less than an attack on our fundamental freedoms. Find out more about your voting rights here.


David vs. Goliath

Compared with the big-dollar super PACs and corporate front groups, working people are the Davids standing up to Goliath in today’s politics. But our strength is in our numbers, our values and plain, hard work. When we come together, we are formidable.

This election year, what’s at stake are basic values. Will we bow to the top 1%? Or will we honor the simple idea that made America great and will make America great again—respect for hard work and the contributions of every person?
