Early voting for Illinois primary far exceeds last midterm

CHICAGO (AP) – Far more people have cast early ballots for Illinois’ primary than did so 4 years ago, an increase that comes amid competitive contests for governor and other offices
and record-breaking spending that has made the election nearly impossible to ignore.

More than 330,000 people had cast ballots for today’s primary as of Sunday, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections, and thousands more people were voting Monday. The total in 2014 was just over 200,000.

Voters will choose nominees for governor, attorney general and other statewide and local contests, as well as some hotly contested congressional races.
