Early voting begins today for the March 18 primary election, and the hot local issue is whether to abolish Evanston Township and have Evanston city government take over its duties.
Except for sheriff, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District commissioner and some judicial races there are no contests in Democratic primary races that Evanston voters get to participate in.
The Republican primary has more interest at the top of the ticket, with four candidates seeking the gubernatorial nomination and two in the U.S. Senate race.
Full lists of candidates are available online.
The nearest early voting location for Evanston voters is at the Evanston Civic Center.
