EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KTVI)-Polls across the state of Illinois open at 6a.m. Tuesday morning and will close at 7p.m. tonight. A lot of eyes are are on the Governor`s race.
Incumbent Democrat Pat Quinn was in East St. Louis on Monday, drumming up support with the help of among others Senator Dick Durbin. Meanwhile, Republican challenger businessman Bruce Rauner was in Springfield making his last minute pitches. Polls have this race very close. The latest surveys seem to be giving Governor Quinn a slight edge.
Then there is the race for Congress in Illinois` 12th district between democratic incumbent Bill Enyart and Republican challenger Mike Bost. Enyart was elected to this downstate district in 2012 after Jerry Costello retired. But he is facing a stiff challenge from Bost who has been a state lawmaker in Springfield for some time. Bost`s emotional outbursts in Springfield have been featured in some Enyart ads.
Polls show this race tight with some giving a slight edge to the Republican challenger.
Finally, there is Illinois` 13th Congressional District race between Republican incumbent Rodney Davis and former Judge and Attorney, Democrat Ann Callis.
Democrats had high hopes for Callis but she may come up short. The latest polls have Davis with a lead, giving him a double digit advantage.
Callis is slated to vote at the Main Street community center at 8:30a.m.
