BLOOMINGTON - Today is the day Illinoisans voice their vote.
Voters will soon begin casting ballots for today's local elections. The Bloomington and Normal mayoral races are up for election. Bloomington has three candidates who are seeking to replace Steve Stockton, who isn't seeking reelection after two terms. In Normal, Chris Koos is seeking a third term against challengers Victor Connor and JaVaughn Martin. Both city councils have several seats up for election. The Heartland Community College Board has three open seats.
Voters in Bloomington, Gridley and unincorporated McLean County will decide whether to approve municipal aggregation.
Chenoa will vote on a proposed municipal sales tax to pay for infrastructure improvements. The .75 percent tax would generate about $120,000 per year.
The polls open at 6 a.m. and will remain open until 7 tonight. WJBC will have election results and reaction tonight during Cardinals baseball. You can also follow our live election blog at WJBC.com.
