Voting Registration Deadline Approaching
2019 is a municipal election year in Indiana. Are you registered to vote? If you want to have your say in the primary election, you must register in the next few days. Hoosiers must register by April 8th to be able to vote in the May 7th primary election. Most cities and towns in Indiana will cast votes for mayor, council, and city ballot questions. Citizens can register to vote online by using the Indiana Voters app or by visiting IndianaVoters.com, and can submit an application to register in person at their local county clerk’s office. The Indiana Voters app also allows Hoosiers to confirm their voter registration, look up their polling place, get driving directions to their polling location, find out who’s on their ballot, track their absentee ballot application or provisional ballot information and contact local election officials. Voter registration will reopen after the May primary. Hoosiers wishing to take part in the November 5th general election must be registered by October 7th. Voters with questions can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE.
It’s that time of year again when riding your bike to work is made possible with the South Shore Line’s (SSL) Bikes on Trains program. This program is offered on two morning and two evening rush-hour weekday trains in addition to select weekend trains. Bike cars will be available on these select trains from April through October. Not only can you bike to work during the week, but you can also explore the bike trails along the South Shore Line on the weekends. Bike cars are bike rack-equipped in addition to regular seating so that passengers can ride in the car near their bicycles. Bike icons can be found on the SSL timetable next to specific train times that run equipped with bike-racks. Bike-rack equipped train cars are also clearly marked with a bike symbol prominently located on the windows of the car. Bikes are not permitted during special Chicago events such as Lollapalooza and the Chicago Air & Water Show. For more information on bike-friendly train schedules, discounts and to plan your trip, please visit mysouthshoreline.com or download the SSL app (available for iPhone and Android). Passengers wishing to bring their bicycles on the train must comply with the requirements listed on the South Shore Line’s website at: www.mysouthshoreline.com/ plan-your-trip/bikes-on-trains.
