SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Polls are now open in Illinois as voters cast ballots in the state’s primary election.

Polls across Illinois opened at 6 a.m. Tuesday. They’ll remain open until 7 p.m.

The most prominent race on the ballot is the Republican campaign for governor. Four men are hoping to win the party’s nomination to continue on to the general election in November.

Businessman Bruce Rauner is leading in the polls against state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn faces a lesser-known challenger, activist Tio Hardiman.

Voters can only cast a ballot for a single party Tuesday.

People can find out their assigned polling place by visiting the Illinois State Board of Election’s website at elections.il.gov
