Statement on Today's Appellate Court Decision to Reinstate the Citywide Referendum Question to the March 19th Ballot

"This afternoon, the Illinois Appellate Court reinstated the citywide referendum question to the March 19th Primary ballot in Chicago. The initial judgment of the Circuit Court of Cook County is vacated, and the case is remanded with instructions to dismiss the complaint for lack of jurisdiction. 

All votes cast for the citywide question will be counted and reported by the Chicago Board of Elections on Election Night, March 19th."
