Early voting turnout high

The County Clerk's office says early voting turnout in Evanston was the sixth highest of any of the 44 locations available to suburban voters ahead of next Tuesday's election.

The County Clerk's office says early voting turnout in Evanston was the sixth highest of any of the 44 locations available to suburban voters ahead of next Tuesday's election.

But turnout here — where some competitive school board races are the big item on the ballot — was nothing compared to turnout just to the north in Wilmette, where voters face a tax increase referendum.

A map of voting by precinct prepared by the clerk's office shows more than 65 voters casting early ballots in every precinct in Wilmette, while turnout in Evanston precincts ranged from less than five votes per precinct — notably on the Northwestern University campus and in some parts of downtown — to no more than 65 votes per precinct in some parts of north and central Evanston.
