Election 2020

You're the boss at the ballot box this year. In 2020, we are covering elections a little differently, and it puts you in the driver's seat.

In previous election cycles, our reporters have gone to local and regional candidates to ask questions about how they plan to serve in public office. This year, we want voters leading these conversations.

In collaboration with Illinois Newspapers of the USA Today Network, WNIJ is co-hosting several listening sessions in order to hear directly from voters about what issues are most important to them and specific questions they have for the candidates running to represent their communities. Then, we will ask those questions to the candidates.

We will share those responses here and on-air between now and November.

We also want to hear from you! Look for voter questions in coming weeks at wnij.org.

Additional support for "You're the Boss" comes from a grant from the Solutions Journalism Network.
