O'Connor withdraws from Appellate Court race

Attorney Eileen O'Connor has dropped her bid for the Tully vacancy on the First District of the Illinois Appellate Court. The Illinois State Board of Elections website confirms that O'Connor withdrew from that race late yesterday afternoon.

O'Connor's departure from the race leaves appointed Justice Terrence J. Lavin in a head-to-head contest with Circuit Court Judge William D. O'Neal.

Today is also the day that ballot order will be determined: All the candidates who were in line when the doors opened at the State Board of Elections on November 28 are eligible for the lottery that will determine who gets the coveted first place on the ballot.

I'll report later today or tomorrow on the lottery outcome.
