The 2020 primary election is right around the corner. This year, it falls on a holiday — St. Patrick’s Day, Tuesday, March 17. And whether you’re sick of politics or glued to the 24-hour news networks, this election season is already a hot one, with voters split on issues like impeachment and candidates looking to align themselves with one side or the other — and to capture their party’s nomination in the primary.

Before we head to the polls on March 17, we want to hear from you.

We’re asking Orland Park voters — what are the biggest issues facing Illinois and the country as we head into the primary? What impact does national politics have on the way you’ll vote?

We’re asking readers to take a moment to fill out Illinois election 2020 voter survey (below). No names will be used on Patch. Responses are due on Monday, Feb. 17.
