The Chicago Board of Elections says the number of registered voters in the city is about 225,000 less than it was when voter registration closed four years ago.

Chicago Board of Elections Chairman Langdon Neal told The Chicago Tribune on Tuesday that it will be difficult to make up the deficit. Neal says that's because the city doesn't have the same level of enthusiasm as it did when Chicago resident President Barack Obama was elected in 2008. Neal calls it "a large hill to overcome."
