Voting is Still On!

Every Day, early voting continues at the County Clerk’s Office at Brookens in Urbana, Illini Union in Urbana and ARC in Champaign. Starting tomorrow, the rest of the early polling places will be open in Champaign County. In CU, that includes Church of the Living G-d in Champaign, Meadowbrook Community Church in Champaign and Leonard Center in Champaign. Here’s a list of Champaign County sites.


Volunteers May Be Needed Locally To Help with Corona Virus Needs

A list is being compiled by Champaign PTA Council, which is partnering with Champaign-Urbana Public Health District, to gather individuals’ contact information so we can be prepared if needs arise. All are welcome (you don’t have to be in the PTA!) and noting that you would like to be contacted about a volunteer opportunity doesn’t mean you’re making a commitment–we know things are changing constantly. Our hope is that we can help our community by organizing mutual aid to get through this crisis together.
