State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, businessman Bruce Rauner, and state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard are vying for the Republican nomination for governor. Tio Hardimann, the former director of an anti-violence group, is taking on incumbent Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn.

The primary election is the first to allow 17-year-olds to vote if they'll be 18 by the general election in November. Nearly 1,000 17-year-olds have registered in suburban Cook County.
