The Central Chicago chapter of FairVote Illinois is dedicated to bringing better elections to the city of Chicago. We focus on advocacy and activism in the Central neighborhoods, including: Old Town, The Loop, South Loop, Streeterville, West Loop, Gold Coast, Goose Island, and Fulton River District.

Abigail Nichols

Meet your chapter lead!

Abigail Nichols is a retired federal food policy analyst who moved to Chicago on a whim four years ago because of neighborhood noise in DC.  A whim has become devotion; Abigail and her husband, Carl, love Chicago!  She has loved ranked choice voting since she co-authored a study for the Washington DC League of Women Voters more than 10 years ago.  She also ran for the Illinois State legislature in 2022.   “Sure, Chicago has problems, but now I can sleep.  Sleep gives me energy to work on problems while enjoying the glory of a city with an amazing past and future.”
