Steven G. Watkins today appointed to the vacancy to which he will soon be elected

Steven G. Watkins won the Democratic nomination for the O'Neal vacancy in the 2nd Subcircuit this past March. As with almost all this year's Cook County judicial primary winners (there is only one exception), Watkins will face no opponent in November.

In the ordinary course, Watkins would have taken office on the first Monday in December. However, the Illinois Supreme Court today appointed Watkins to the O'Neal vacancy, effective June 16.
