Park Ridge voter registration drive brings in nearly 100, per clerk

A voter registration drive hosted by the Park Ridge City Clerk at the Park Ridge Public Library and at an assisted living facility signed up nearly 100 people, according to the clerk.

City Clerk and Deputy Registrar Sal Raspanti partnered with the library on April 27 and with the Summit of Uptown on April 25. Raspanti helped residents verify their voter status, register new voters or re-register voters who are new to Park Ridge.

“Voter apathy may be a thing of the past . . . well, at least, in 2024,” Raspanti said in a news release. “Special thanks go to Sarah Vessalo and Joanna Bertucci at the library and Tom Pahnke at The Summit for putting things together.”

Raspanti said residents can always contact his office in Park Ridge City Hall at 847-318-5204 or visit the city website with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
