Illinois Elections

It's primary election day in Illinois.

Illinois voters will find out which two candidates will be vying for the state's top job.

Bruce Rauner is leading the field on the GOP side but Kirk Dillard has been gaining some ground.

It looks like Governor Quinn will beat out his primary challenger to win the Democratic nomination.

Meanwhile, voters in Lawrence County, Illinois will decide whether or not to allow electric aggregation throughout Lawrence County.

The city of Lawrenceville overwhelmingly approved aggregation for the city last year.

Aggregation creates a consumer group with more buying power than individual customers and in turn has the potential to save customers a lot of money.

Customers may opt out of the program at any time without penalty.

Officials believe aggregation could mean 10-25 percent lower electric rates than what residents currently pay.

If Ameren's rates fall below the aggregated rate, that rate will be matched by the aggregate company.
