  • Jim Gibbons presents Our Lady of the Angels fire

    Thursday, October 6th at 6:30 PM

             

    Jim Gibbons presents  the 1958 tragedy in which 92 children and three nuns perished in the fire at the Our Lady of the Angels School in Chicago. Inspired by reading the book "To Sleep with the Angels: The Story of A Fire", Jim learned that the Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside, IL had 25 graves where children of the fire were interred. His parents were interred there as well and he went to the memorial to pay his respects. At that point it was the 50th Anniversary of the fire. He began researching the fire in depth and got into contact with some of the survivors.

    During his presentation, Gibbons will also discuss the life and death of Margaret (“Peggy”) Anne Sansonetti, pictured to the right, who was killed by smoke inhalation in the fire at age 10.  Stop by or call the Reference Desk at 708-458-2880 ext 105 to register.

  • 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.
     
    Sincerely,
