Polls open for Chicago-area elections

It’s Election Day for people in various parts of the Chicago area.

One key race is in the second congressional district, to replace the seat once held by Jesse Jackson Jr.

In this special election, voters will have their choice of Democrat Robin Kelly, Republican Paul McKinley, Green Party candidate Lealan Jones, and Independents Curtiss Bey, Marcus Lewis and Elizabeth Pahlke.

With little attention on the election since the primary, there is concern over low voter turn-out.

In Romeoville, former Chicago Bears player Steve McMichael will face incumbent Mayor John Noak.

There is also a three-way race for mayor in Des Plaines.

Polls open at 6 a.m., and close at 7 p.m.
