Another advertisement for bullet voting has appeared on Facebook, this time for District 5 incumbent Michael Rein.
Bullet voting is a tactic in which the voter chooses one candidate, despite the option to vote for additional candidates.
In theory, this allows better chance of winning for the single candidate.
Incumbent Michael Rein is vying for one of two spots up for election against incumbent John Jung, Jr and Lesli Melendy.
Tina Hill turned in petitions to be on the ballot in District 5, but withdrew from the race in January.
A Northwest Herald article quoted Hill – “While I am up to the challenge of running again for County Board, I have decided that the need to replace Rein takes priority over my political aspirations,” Hill wrote. “Melendy, and the experience and the enthusiasm she brings, is the better candidate to do this.”
Melendy is Chief of Staff for Republican State Senator Karen McConnaughay. McConnaughay was a Sponsor on HB171, the “Jack Franks Bill”. If HB171 Signed Jack Franks Would Have More Power of County Board than Mike Madigan has in the Illinois House.
