June 28, 2022 is primary election day in Illinois. As of June 17, more than 73,000 Illinoisans had voted by mail and nearly 67,000 more had voted early. That’s just a tiny fraction of the more than 8-million active registered voters in Illinois. Meanwhile, the candidates have been burning through the $5 a gallon gas average, stumping around the state. Former President Donald J. Trump will stump for congressional and gubernatorial candidates in the Quincy area on June 25.
