BERWYN, Ill. | Slow streams of Illinoisans made their way to the polls for local elections.

Tuesday's turnout is expected to be low as Illinois voters elect mayors, highway commissioners and school board members. Cook County Clerk David Orr said it was a bit slow in the Chicago suburbs. But he said it's busier in certain cities where there are highly contested races, like Country Club Hills, Dixmoor or Ford Heights. Orr says equipment is working well. He said he didn't see any problems.

About 100 voters cast ballots at one Rockford polling place by 8:30 a.m. In Peoria, voting booths at First Baptist Church saw one voter every five minutes by 8:15 a.m.

The race to replace former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has received the most attention in the Chicago area.
