Early voting for Presidential Primary Election in Chicago delayed following court order



CHICAGO — Those looking to cast their vote early for the March 19 presidential primary election in Chicago will face delays following an order from the Appellate Court of Illinois.

Due to the court order, early voting at the board supersite and board offices have been suspended until further notice. 

The order requires that Ashonta C. Rice, a candidate for Judge of the Circuit Court on the Democratic Party ballot, be removed from the ballot. 

The Chicago Board of Elections must now reprogram all early voting touchscreen machines to remove Rice from the ballot to comply with the order.

Officials from the Chicago Board of Elections say they are working to reopen the closed sites as soon as possible.

Democratic vote by mail ballots for the upcoming election have yet to be mailed to voters in Chicago and officials said they will be sent out as soon as possible.

Visit the Chicago Board of Elections website for details on the upcoming election.
