Homewood roots: Work in Progress will bring its own brand of Americana to Fall Fest

Homewood-Flossmoor area votes Tuesday will help elect the nation’s president and also make their choices in other federal, state and county contests.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The main event, of course, is the presidential election. Nationally, a close finish is predicted between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. Gary Johnson is the Libertarian candidate and Jill Stein is running on the Green Party ticket.

Incumbent Mark Kirk, a Republican, is running for re-election to the U.S. Senate against Democrat Tammy Duckworth . . .
