WTTW’s 2020 Voter Guide to the Primary Election is an online resource designed to inform voters about the candidates running for office in the March 17 election. Candidates were given two minutes to tell voters where they stand on the issues, why they feel they are best qualified and what they intend to do if elected or reelected. The messages were recorded at the WTTW studios at no cost to the candidates. The Voter Guide was produced with help from the League of Women Voters of Cook County.
