If there ever was a year to make the most of your vote, local delegates like Dave Syverson say this is it.
"In the past, by the time the elections get to Illinois, they're pretty well decided!"
Delegates whose candidates have dropped out of the race say their work isn't done...Dave Winters is listed under Rudy Giuliani... "Trying to be on the radio, interviews, letting people know that I'm still on the ballot."
Syverson and Winters say if they get the chance, they'll both be backing Mitt Romney.
Mary Tuite is working for the Obama campaign. She says she'll be on the phones all of tonight as well as tomorrow.
"Answering questions for voters, voters who are undecided, trying to reach them and let them know, you know, why I support Senator Obama."
Freeport Mayor George Gaulrapp, another Obama delegate, is optimistic...
"Anything can happen! Who would have thought the New York Giants were going to win last night?"
