After months of campaigning and commercials, it all comes down to today, as voters go to the polls in Sangamon County and across Illinois.
Locally, in addition to casting a vote for President, voters will be heard in contests for Congress, the state legislature, countywide offices and county board seats.
They will also consider a proposed state constitutional amendment intended to make it harder to sweeten public sector pensions.
In Springfield, residents will vote in a non-binding referendum on whether the city should adopt a residency requirement for future city employees.
And voters in many Sangamon County jurisdictions will decide whether to enter into electricity aggregation plans that could lower their utility costs. The polls are open until 7 p.m.
We will have complete coverage of the results tonight, brought to you by Maldaner’s Restaurant.
