D. Renee Jackson did not submit her credentials for scrutiny by either the Chicago Bar Association or the Alliance of Bar Associations for Judicial Screening.

With only three of 137 City precincts still outstanding and only five of 131 suburban precincts still to report, Jackson has 25,275 votes, 9,000 more than Chelsey R. Robinson, who has 16,150 votes. Celeste K. Jones is running third in this race, with 15,658 votes.
