Remember that if you are interested in running for Northbrook office, you do not HAVE to go beforeRead More the Caucus. They are a political party that is choosing people to run on the Caucus ticket. Just like a republican or a democrat. So, if you want to run, and you miss their deadline, you can still get your name on the ballot.
