Those running for Circuit Court judge have a huge showing in the yard sign division. Winnebago County Clerk Margie Mullins says that's because for the first time there are subdistrict candidates running for election. There are four subdistricts, and two are vying for a seat. Mullins says even those who don't frequent the court system should be educated on each candidates platform.
"If not yourself maybe someone you know or in your family and you want to make sure who's sitting there is going to represent and be fair and unbiased when they're listening to cases." said Margie Mullins, Winnebago county clerk
