Primary elections are being held across Illinois Tuesday. In the stateline area, there are only a few races taking place.
One, here in Rockford, will help eventually decide who will replace Mayor Larry Morrissey, who is not running for re-election. Today, votes will be cast in the Republican mayoral primary between Pam Connell and Brian Leggero.
Several City Council wards also have primary races. That includes one Republican and four Democratic incumbents.
In Belvidere, they also have primaries for mayor and several aldermen wards. The township will also vote for highway commissioner and trustees.
The consolidated election after these races will be held Tuesday, April 4.
