A candidate for alderman in the 28th Ward has been removed from the race.

Carmelita Earls is out.

The Illinois Appellate Court removed her Friday, leaving it a two-way race between Jason Ervin and William Siegmund.

The 11th hour decision means Earls' name will still appear on the already printed ballot Tuesday, but no votes for her will be counted.
