Gearing up for the runoff: Medill Report’s Electioncast 2015

The Medill News Service’s Election 2015 video team is hosting three separate electioncasts today. In our first update, Lukas Voss and Empriss Campbell tell us about the candidates’ schedules, continuing reaction to last week’s controversial mayoral debate, high early voting turnout and how the 15th Ward’s new demographic landscape impacts the aldermanic race.

In this first Electioncast, we explore public opinion on issues and look into the preparations as citizens go to the polls.
