The primary election in Illinois’ 2nd District will be held this Tuesday as voters choose among a crowded field of candidates to replace former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.
Early voting ended yesterday but in person absentee voting was held today and will be again tomorrow at 69 West Washington.
Mail-in absentee ballots must have a postmark of tomorrow night, February 25th, or earlier.
And on Tuesday, polls will be open throughout the 2nd District from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
There’s been a low turn-out so far but election officials say that’s normal.
The 2nd District primary winners will face off in the general election on April 9th.
