The 2019 municipal election is April 2. Here are some key dates and times you need to know if you're planning to vote.

The April 2, 2019, elections will decide who will serve on city councils, school boards and in other local offices. The Belleville News-Democrat plans to send questionnaires to candidates in selected competitive races. If you’re running for office and want to participate in the questionnaires, please send an email to reporter Joseph Bustos at jbustos@bnd.com.

The Belleville News-Democrat will only accept electronic submissions. We ask that responses be returned by March 2. If you have any questions, please call Reporter Joseph Bustos at 618-239-2451.

Responses may be included in a BND print edition.

This is a continuation of the service the BND offered prior to the 2018 general election.

Joseph Bustos is the state affairs and politics reporter for the Belleville News-Democrat, where he strives to hold elected officials accountable and provide context to decisions they make. He has won multiple awards from the Illinois Press Association for coverage of sales tax referenda.
