    It's déjà vu all over again for 14 Chicago wards facing runoffs.

    Early voting begins Monday for the April 5 elections. More than 2,100 candidates across Cook County are on the ballot, including hotly contested races involving long-time Chicago City Council members.

    Polls are open through March 31 at 17 Chicago sites and 43 suburban locations from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Some locations are open Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    Voters registered in any of the 14 Chicago wards may use any city site, regardless of where they live, officials said.

    Head to chicagoelections.com or cookcountyclerk.com for a full list of polling sites, along with candidate lists and referenda questions.
    Early voters don't need a reason for voting early but must bring a valid, government-issued photo ID.
    For those voting absentee, the deadline to request a ballot is March 31.
