Early voting for Chicago primary election moved back to Tuesday, May 31

CHICAGO (CBS) — Early voting for the June 28 primary election has been pushed back to begin next Tuesday, May 31.

The start date for early voting had been Thursday, May 26, after being pushed back a week from May 19. But it had to be changed  again after the Cook County Circuit Court made three rulings:

• Candidate Stephany Rose Spaulding is off the ballot for the 1st Congressional District;

• Candidate Carmen Navarro Gercone is on the ballot for Cook County Sheriff;

• Candidate Noland Rivera is on the ballot for Cook County Sheriff.

These changes – along with additional ballot proofing and pre-election voting machine testing – require the start of early voting to move five days, the Chicago Board of Elections reported.

Beginning Tuesday, Early Voting will be held at the Board of Elections supersite at 191 N. Clark St. It will be open from May 31 through Election Day June 28 for the following hours:

Weekdays: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Saturday: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Sunday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Election Day: 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. (June 28)

There will be extended weekday hours until 7 p.m. from June 20 to June 24.
