March 20 Primary Elections
In just a few weeks, Illinois primary voters will be deciding their party nominees for the fall General Election. Important statewide races for Governor and Attorney General in both parties are pending with what looks like a more competitive Democrat primary for those offices. Early voting is now available. Contact your county clerk for details as to times and locations that you are able to vote before the March 20th primary.
Preview to 2018 Session
With the gubernatorial primary and an unusually large number of legislative primaries, (many in open seats), the initial few months of the legislative session should be fairly quiet. Already the House cancelled two days in January and will be meeting only a total of 14 days before the March 20th primary elections. The Senate has 18 days scheduled between now and the primary elections. Once March 20th comes and goes however, we expect a flurry of activity on the budget and issues that raise greater political interest.
