Primary day in Illinois -

Primary day in Illinois

This morning Illinois voters will have a chance to cast their ballots in the Primary Elections. However, the Chicago Tribune is reporting there will be a low voter turnout. The Tribune says that a good majority of the state's 7.5 million registered voters will not make it to the polls. That prediction is coming at time when the state is facing huge budget woes. Governor Pat Quinn is trying to protect his job from state Comptroller Dan Hynes. Their campaign has already been a heated one. A U-S Senate position is also up for grabs. Senator Roland Burris will not run for his seat. Burris you may recall filled the seat left vacant by President Barrack Obama.  Since then Burris has faced criticism because he was appointed to the seat by then Governor Rod Blagojevich. There are several GOP and Democrats pushing for that position. Congressman John Shimkus will also try to defend his 19th Congressional Seat against Mike Firsching of Moro, IL.  There are also several other officers voters will vote one including: Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General's Office, Secretary of State, Comptroller, and Treasurer. So tell me what you think. Will you vote this primary election?
