Giles Morris offers another dispatch from the field: 

 7 PM and I'm at the 21st and 26th precincts in the Tri-Taylor area of the 25th Ward. Solis won 61 percent, followed by Martha Padilla's 18 percent and Cuahutemoc Morfin's 11 percent in both. Solis normally wins big at about 75 per cent here, so these numbers are scary for him and mean he has got to do better than usual in Pilsen and also has to have nailed Chinatown. Everything is packed up.

The Second Ward also polls here: challengers  Bob Fioretti and Larry Doody ran very close at around 35 percent; incumbent  Madeline Haithcock, Kenny Johnson, and David Askew were all between 15 and 25 percent.
