The Feb. 23 primary election will determine the names on the April 6 general election ballot. In all but one of the contested races, the names of the top two vote-getters on Feb. 23 will appear on the April 6 ballot.

Early voting continues in Room G300 of the Civic Center through tomorrow. Polls open at 6 a.m. on Feb. 23, which is also the last day that mail-in ballots must be postmarked in order to be counted.

All Evanston voters can vote for mayor and City Clerk. Residents of the Fourth and Eighth wards will also vote for alderman. Here is how the ballots for the Feb. 23 primary election and the April 6 general election are shaping up.

In the mayoral race, the top two vote-getters will advance to the April 6 general election unless one candidate receives more than 50% of the votes.

Evanston Mayoral Candidates: Daniel Biss, Lori Keenan, and Sebastian Nalls

In the Mayor’s race, the top two vote-getters in the primary will advance to the April 6 General Election unless one candidate receives more than 50% of the votes. In that case, no general election would be necessary.
