At yesterday’s board meeting, we thanked Commissioner Jonathan T. Swain for his over five years of service to the voters of Chicago. Commissioner Swain joined the Board in January 2016, and his replacement will be appointed by the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County.

From Commissioner Swain: ‘’It has been a great honor to serve the voters of this city and assist the dedicated public servants who work day in and day out to administer free and fair elections in Chicago. I am very proud of the work we have accomplished together over the last five years, including driving the successful expansion of our Early Voting and Vote By Mail programs and increasing outreach and accessibility for all communities.’’

The Office of the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County will now review and interview qualified candidates to select the next nominee to the three-member Chicago Board of Election Commissioners.
