BLOOMINGTON — The polls are open throughout the Twin Cities and Central Illinois as voters cast ballots in a range of elections.
In the Twin Cities, there are contested races for mayor in both Bloomington and Normal along with races for city councils in both communities. In Bloomington, incumbent Tari Renner is opposed by Alderman Kevin Lower. In Normal, incumbent Chris Koos is being challenged by Marc Tiritilli.
At the Hanson Student Center polling place at Illinois Wesleyan University, there were three people voting at 7 a.m. but that number had risen to 56 by 8:10 a.m., said an election judge.
At several other polling places, voter traffic also was steady.
Polls will remain open until 7 p.m. Look to pantagraph.com for complete coverage after the polls close and in the printed newspaper on Wednesday. Use the hashtag #twincityvotes to let us know how our voting experience is today.

In the city of Bloomington, that's the Bloomington Election Commission (www.becvote.org). Elsewhere in McLean County, including the town of Normal, it's the McLean County Clerk's office (www.mcleancountyil.gov/countyclerk).
