Hear from all the candidates of the Rock Island Mayoral race here

Tuesday is municipal election day in Illinois and there are a lot of issues that will be decided. In our area, voters will elect mayors in big cities and small towns from Rock Island and Rock Falls to Stronghurst and Lanark. 

There are also several ballot questions. In Bureau County, voters will be asked to approve funding for Tiskilwa flood control improvements and in Mercer County, the library district needs approval to issue bonds to pay for a building addition.

Also, three counties are asking voters to raise taxes to help fund school improvements. A one percent sales tax referendum will be held in Mercer, Whiteside and Henry counties. In Henry County, superintendents say the tax will generate about $3 million that would go to nine school districts for building improvements and maintenance.

Voters will also decide whether to consolidate the East Coloma and Nelson school districts.

Once again we're collecting information on dozens of ballots and will have the results as they come in on KWQC.com and KWQC-TV6.

The polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Click here for results.
