Statement on Today's Court Hearing Regarding the Citywide Referendum Question

“Today, Judge Kathleen Burke granted the Plaintiffs’ Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings and invalidated the citywide referendum question on the March 19th Primary ballot. 

The Circuit Court has not yet entered any written order based on the results of today's hearing. As such, the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners has not yet moved to appeal this decision and is still evaluating its options. 

Early Voting and Voting By Mail in Chicago will continue until the Board is directed otherwise. The Board awaits future direction from the Circuit Court of Cook County on this matter.”
