Special Election in Illinois’ 18th Congressional District
Written By David E. Smith   |   08.27.15

The race for the 18th Congressional will be held on September 10th.  Republican Darin LaHood and Democrat Rob Mellon are the two nominees running against each another in this special election to replace the seat once held by Aaron Schock, who resigned in March. Schock is involved in a federal investigation for criminal campaign spending.

Last night the two candidates vying for this vacant seat debated some of the issues.  Moderators included State Journal-Register political writer Bernard Schoenburg, WMAY news director Jim Leach and Peoria Journal Star political writer Chris Kaergard.  You can watch the full one hour debate on YouTube HERE.

Because this is a special election, turnout will be very low.  Some are expecting turnout to be less than 10 percent of voters.  That means your vote is more important than ever!

If you think you may not be able to vote on Tuesday, September 10th for this special election, you can take advantage of early voting.  Visit your county clerk’s web site below to find the early voting locations in your area.

You can also vote by mail (absentee ballot) through Sept 7th. You’ll want to call or visit your county clerk’s web site for the details on how to obtain an absentee ballot and when they must be postmarked.

Finally, the last day to vote in person is only at the county clerk’s office on Monday, Sept. 9th.
