Chicago Data Online
If you've tried to access our website in the past week and couldn't, try again: it's there. The site was down for a brief time while we changed to a new Internet Service Provider. Now that we're back, we're better than ever. The site has new data for the Spring 2007 elections in Chicago, and State data should be up in the next week.
