Dolton, Morton Grove hold Village Trustee primaries

Cook County Clerk David Orr reminds voters in two municipalities – Dolton and Morton Grove – that  tomorrow is Election Day. These two villages are the only suburban Cook County jurisdictions with primary elections on Tuesday.

There are 29,583 registered voters eligible to vote in this election. Residents who are unsure if they are able to vote can use the Your Voter Information tool on our website to check a sample ballot and find their polling place.

A total of 615 voters cast their ballots for this election during Early Voting, which ran from Feb. 9 – 21. An additional 178 mail ballots have been returned. 

Contests by party
Democratic Party: Dolton Village Trustee. Eight candidates vying for three spots.
Action Party: Morton Grove Village Trustee. Five candidates vying for three spots.

With just 36 precincts, the Feb. 24 Primary has the fewest precincts of any odd-year suburban Cook County primary election over the past 12 years. The 2011 Consolidated Primary, with two contests and 48 precincts, had 10 percent turnout, or about 3,000 total voters.

Polls are open tomorrow from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Polling locations by township and township maps of precincts are available at cookcountyclerk.com.

Election Results: Suburban Cook County election results will be available after polls close at the Clerk’s online results page.

Media Credentials: Members of the media will not need a paper credential provided by the Clerk’s office.  However, election judges will require news reporters, photographers and TV crews to show a government-issued or company identification card. Please remember that interviews cannot be conducted inside the polling place.
