Majority Municipal elections are right around the corner. Voters in McLean County and elsewhere elect new mayors, city council members and other local officials April 9th. Often, with low turn-out in these elections, the margin of victory can be very slim. During a primary in Macomb, a one vote victory turned into a tie, and mass confusion.
