I have received many calls from people wanting to view their ballot. Click here to see what is on your ballot, where you vote and how to get a ballot by mail. Early voting starts March 20. For Fremont residents, you may vote early at the Fremont Library. Ballots will begin being mailed on March 20 for those who have requested to vote by mail. You may still request a ballot by mail.
The next election is on April 4th. You will be voting for Village Mayor,Trustees and Clerk, Township Officials, Park District, School and Library Boards. Basically the people who vote on the levies for about 90 percent of your tax bill. Traditionally there is a very low voter turnout in these elections, and there shouldn't be because your local representatives impact you greatly!!!! Don't miss out on voting in your local election.
Enjoy Ray Lake Forest Preserve in Fremont Township
Ray Lake Forest Preserve is located on Erhart Road in Fremont Township.
Enjoy the 2.7-mile gravel trail that winds around wetlands and open prairies Please keep dogs leashed and on trails at all times, and pick up after them.
Once known as Ray Lake Farm, the land here was originally acquired by the Ray family in 1958 for breeding and raising pure bred Angus beef cattle. In the late 1960s, the family acquired the Dwight Eisenhower Black Angus herd from Missouri and raised their own herd to 400. By 1976, the last of the herd was sold. After the passing of Edward Ray, the farm was leased for soybean farming until 1999 when the Forest Preserve purchased the property. Click here for more information.
