Today is the deadline to register for the April 5 elections in Chicago and the suburbs.

Next month, Chicago voters will cast ballots in aldermanic run-offs in 14 wards.

Voters downstate and in area suburbs will cast ballots for thousands of seats on village boards, school boards, park district boards, library boards, fire protection boards and local referenda.

Voters who miss today's registration deadline may still register in person with their respective election authorities starting Wednesday and continuing through March 29.
