You may not realize it, but it is election day in Illinois.
In Quincy, there is a Republican primary race in Ward 1 between Greg Fletcher and Eric Entrup.
Along with a Democratic primary for Ward 7, although Justin Crouch has stopped campaigning and pledged his support to Benjamin Uzelac.
The winner from the primary election will then be on the ballot for the general election in April.
Adams County Clerk Chuck Venvertloh is hoping for a 20-30 percent turnout.
“A lot people sometimes look at the general elections where you’ve got the president on the ballot or if you got the state offices on the ballot,” Venvertloh said. “But if you try to remind people if you take a look at the tax bill that you get, your real estate tax bill, the off bill election, the consolidated elections, those are the ones that really hit your tax bills the hardest.”
Polling places are open from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday night.
If you are already registered, you can show up to your polling place, but if not you will have to go to the Adams County Courthouse.
