The turnout in Evanston is higher than for most of the early voting locations around suburban Cook County, but far lower than in Wheeling where 1,164 people have turned out to vote at the township hall, and lower than the turnout in Glenview, 654, or Skokie, 653.

If you’re planning to vote early but are wondering how to cast your ballot for the flock of judicial contests. You can find recommendations online from an alliance of bar associations. The Chicago Tribune is recommending that voters not retain four sitting judges.

Early voting continues at the Civic Center through Oct. 28.
