With just a few hours left and 14 candidate vying, one of the few times in the City where the result isn't a sure thing......reports show the city on track for record low turnout.

With that many candidates, its pretty clear there will be a runoff.

I was listening to a rebroadcast of Thom Hartmann's show last night on the way home from bowling. His guest was from Chicago and she was discussing the mayoral race. Apparently, there are three leading candidates each polling at 14% and a fourth candidate within reach at 10%. The interesting part was with 14 candidates running there will be no one getting 51% of the vote to avoid a runoff and the top two runoff candidates may not be known until early March when they count all the absentee ballots.

Axelrod says there's a top rung of about six...but anything is possible. As always....turnout it is the issue.

Axelod says nothing would be totally surprising

One unexpected clue, high turnout in one of the 'lower tier' candidates (Joyce) ward reported this morning.
