It’s election day, and that’s our voting mascot Gumby there in the photo next to an Election Cake from Hewn Bakery in Evanston.

What’s an Election Cake?

Well it seems its an old New England tradition that fell out of fashion, but these days some bakers, including those at Hewn, are trying to revive it.

Nothing like some sugary carbs to consume while waiting for the results tonight!

A whole lot of Evanstonians have voted already, but if you’re not one of them, you’ve got until 7 p.m. tonight to do it.

If you’re not sure where to vote, you can find your polling place here. Not registered? You can even register to vote at your polling place today.

We’ll have results from the key local races as they start coming in this evening.
