 After voting concludes at 7:00 p.m. they will announce the official results of the straw poll at the ILGOP Headquarters in Chicago. While other states have straw polls, Illinois is one of the first to offer a presidential straw poll of this geographic scope.  Online voting began on October 29th, while in-person voting will happen at locations throughout the state on Saturday, November 5th – exactly one year prior to the 2012 Election.  For a contribution of $5 to the Illinois Republican Party, any Illinois voter can cast a vote for the candidate they wish to stand for election next November.  The vote will also help raise money and organize volunteers for the coming congressional and state elections.
