A Glenview Village Electrical Aggregation Question was on the November 6, 2012 ballot in the village of Glenview which is in Cook County, where it was approved.

This measure sought to allow village officials to seek out lower rates for electricity by collectively bargaining. Residents are able to opt out of the program if they did not want to participate. Village officials pursued this because of the potential cost savings in buying electricity in bulk for residents.[1]
