Illinois will have its youngest voters ever as early voting begins today in the primary elections.

Under a new law, 17-year-olds can register and vote in the primary, as long as they’re 18 by the November general election.

More than 9,000 have done so.

We’ll see how many actually cast a ballot in the primary, which usually has a low voter turnout.

In Cook County alone, there are 42 suburban early voting locations, plus the county clerk’s downtown office.

Early voting ends March 15.

The primary is on March 18.
