Anthony Young and Pamela Allen, both Austin residents who were electioneering for the U.S. Rep. Danny Davis’ campaign, stood outside Malcolm X College’s West Side Learning Center in West Garfield Park Tuesday morning trying to talk to voters on their way to the polls.

Young started electioneering two years ago after he was invited along by some friends. He said he enjoys talking to people, adding that he feels like a Johnny-on-the-spot. […]

It was Allen and Young’s first time working together, and the two bonded over the candy Young brought to hand to voters. Allen said she considered him a friend now, adding another to the list of ones she has made standing outside polling places for more than a decade.

“We’re out here for 12 hours, we gotta find something to talk about,” Allen said.

The city of Chicago has sued Glock, one of the largest firearms manufacturers in the world, accusing the gunmaker of willfully ignoring design flaws in its handguns that allow for them to be easily turned to fire automatic rounds.

A spike in the use of “auto sears” or “switches” — quarter-sized devices affixed to Glock pistols that allow for multiple bullets to be fired with one trigger pull — has only exacerbated the city’s entrenched violence problems, city attorneys allege. […]

The complaint, filed Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court, accuses Glock of violating the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Business Practices Act, as well as the Chicago municipal code, by selling the modifiable guns to civilians who don’t work in law enforcement — “anyone with $20 – $25 to spare and a desire to circumvent long-standing federal and state prohibitions on possessing fully automatic machine guns can do so by buying an auto sear and affixing it to a Glock pistol.”

Attorneys for the city say the lawsuit is the first of its kind to be filed since the Illinois General Assembly amended the state’s consumer fraud law year to include firearm manufacturers.

* From the Illinois Times publisher regarding Lee Milner…

Many of you know Lee, who has taken photos for IT and SBJ for many years. He is no longer able to do photography work due to his declining health, but the March 28 issue of Illinois Times will feature a retrospective of his photography. We are hosting an open house at the office from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, March 28, honoring Lee and his work over the years. Please invite anyone else that you think might be interested in stopping by.

The IT is at 1240 S. Sixth St. in Springfield.

* Here’s the rest…

    “This shift (to drop AP) will give us the opportunity to redeploy more dollars…where we might have gaps.”

    Isn’t that precisely why you hire AP in the first place — to fill gaps in coverage?


  2. - NIU Grad - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 2:46 pm:

    “redeploy more dollars”

    Redeploying it right into their investment portfolio…

    Not paying journalists…not paying AP…Where’s the content supposed to come from?


  3. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 2:55 pm:

    ===not paying AP…Where’s the content===

    To be somewhat fair, the AP in this state at least is a shell of its former self.


  4. - Ivory-billed woodpecker - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:21 pm:

    I love Election Day. And in honor, I wish to follow in Arshag Garbadian’s foot steps and also renounce my allegiance and fidelity to the Emperor of the Ottomans.


  5. - We've never had one before - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:22 pm:

    >>>the AP in this state at least is a shell of its former self.

    Remember when they tried making the news themselves?
    Like trying to FOIA a list of all the FOID holders?

    I can’t thank John O’Connor enough for starting the process that wound up making FOID holder data private.


  6. - Linus - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:26 pm:

    Sending best wishes to Lee Milner, a truly wonderful guy. Thinking of you, buddy.


  7. - Amalia - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:36 pm:

    wait, you’ve never been to Manny’s Rich? if true that is the biggest shocker of the day.


  8. - Amalia - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:36 pm:

    oh wait, its Isabel. still shocking.


  9. - Soccermom - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:42 pm:

    To put today’s turnout in perspective (with the understanding that the numbers above are incomplete)
    In the mayoral election, The review of all 1,291 voting precincts throughout the city found that a mere 29 percent of registered Black voters and just 20.5 percent of registered Latinos cast a ballot in the April run-off, a far lower figure than the 61.1 percent of Chicago’s registered white voters who turned out.


  10. - CornfieldCowboy - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:45 pm:

    55-64: 48,834 ballots cast – 19.24%
    65-74: 58,713 ballots cast – 23.13%
    75+: 42,844 ballots cast – 16.88%

    Total speculation here, without knowing the exact lines of Mary Flowers district. I would think she might hang on, if the numbers are equivalent. Older voters, in theory will be loyal to her.


  11. - Soccermom - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:47 pm:

    Trying again…

    To put today’s turnout in perspective (with the understanding that the numbers above are incomplete)

    In the mayoral runoff election, there were 613,795 total ballots cast, for a turnout percentage of 38.7%. That made it the highest number of votes cast in the city since 1990.

    A review by the UIC Great Cities Institute found that 29 percent of registered Black voters and 20.5 percent of registered Latinos cast ballots, compared with 61.1 percent of registered white voters.


  12. - Telly - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 3:57 pm:

    For what it’s worth, looks like an older electorate is turning out today compared to the mayoral election. Those board of election numbers show 26.5 percent of voters today are younger than 45. Back in April, 38 percent of voters were younger than 45.

    ==Not paying journalists…not paying AP…Where’s the content supposed to come from?==

    Brian Timpone has the answer, and you are not going to like it.


  14. - Three Dimensional Checkers - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 4:05 pm:

    Ok, boomers, lol. They are turning out.


  15. - Shevek - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 4:06 pm:

    I just want to point out the total failure on WCIA’s reporting about the resolution passed by the Urbana city counsel. They said a ceasefire resolution was passed. Nowhere in the document that was passed is the word “ceasefire.” What it does call for is a “just, secure, and lasting peace.”


  16. - Frida's boss - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 4:10 pm:

    69.25% of votes cast in the City of Chicago are 55+ in age. With the highest voting bloc being age 65-74 at 23.13%. 75+ in age is running at almost 17% of the vote.

    This is a large difference when the 75+ age group is running higher than all the age group breakdowns under age 55, but in the mayoral runoff, the only age group they outvoted were 18-24-year-olds.

    This is a massive drop in numbers.
    In the Mayoral runoff, the age group under 45 accounted for 38% of the vote. Today they are running at only 27% of the vote. a 11-point drop is not a winning formula.

    Now could this make a major turn? Maybe everyone is waiting to vote after 3? Or there’s going to be a 10-point sway due to mail-in ballots? Most 20-somethings are known for their use of actual hand-delivered mail as a viable method of communication.


  17. - Stephanie Kollmann - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 5:07 pm:

    I’d expect to see voters under 45 as about 31% in the end. Hopefully more.


  18. - Frida's boss - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 6:07 pm:

    Age 55 and up are at 57.58%
    Age 44 and under are at 28.72%

    That 45-54 age group is at 13.7%

    Not sure this bodes well for Clayton Harris, nor any other DSA candidate. Having their voting base only at under 30% all day is not good.


  19. - Stephanie Kollmann - Tuesday, Mar 19, 24 @ 6:16 pm:

    ==Clayton Harris, nor any other DSA candidate.==

    Lol, wut
