Time to vote!

By the time this is posted in the morning polls will have been open for over two hours. If you live in Chicago's 6th Ward or even portions of the 9th Ward you may have noticed some changes as far as who represents you in the state senate and the state house.

While you may expect Elgie Sims to be running for re-election to his old 34th state representative district, now he's the current senator for the 17th state senate district. The previous senator Donne Trotter resigned back in January. And of course Sims' replacement in the state house is one Nicholas Smith.

BTW, if you're unsure who's on the ballot before you vote go to this page at Chicago Board of Elections to find out who will be on the ballot. You will have to enter your address to find the ballot for the precinct where you reside.

We do have a contentious primary for 4th district Cook County commissioner. It seems many aren't too happy with Stanley Moore. Question is will the three challengers be able to unseat him on the Cook County board.

Finally, how many of us have been paying attention to the primary for Governor? Do you think JB Pritzker - in spite of his long ago comments with regards to Black politicos on a wiretap - will be able to pull out a victory with his vast fortune.

As always we encourage you to vote today. Take that time out to cast a vote, and of course make your choice in this year's election. After tomorrow we have a long way to November for the general election.
