Republicans place more election judges than the Democrats in the 43rd

In an unusual turn of events for the City of Chicago, the Republican organization in the 43rd Ward is better organized than the Democrat organization.

As of 4:00 pm on Monday, the day before the election, the 43rd Ward Republicans have all but four election judge positions filled, and several individuals had to be turned down for judge positions because they didn’t have adequate Republican credentials. Some precincts had an excess of applicants.

The 43rd Ward Democrats, by contrast, have nine open positions.

“We’ll be happy to help the Democrats out in the fall”, said Committeeman Chris Cleveland. “It’s common in the city to have Democrat judges masquerading as Republicans in some polling places. We’ll be happy to return the favor if the Democrats are short-handed again later this year.”
