MARSHALL, Ill. (WTHI) - Elections are underway in Illinois. Voters have until 7 p.m. CST to cast their ballots.

Clark County is already breaking a record for voter turnout, according to the Clerk’s Office.

They say the spotlight is on the Sheriff’s race. Deputy Derrick Sanders and Deputy Bill Brown are both running for the Republican ticket.

People who live in Clark County say it's one of the most civil and well-respected campaigns they've seen.

The community's support is inspiring Brown to lead the community he was born and raised.

"It’s very exciting to see the entire community get involved and be active in the whole process," said Brown.

The two Republican candidates have campaigned for over a year now. News 10 saw several voters show up at the polls to vote solely for the Sheriff’s race Tuesday.

Sanders says he's passionate to apply his leadership in this role.

“I think I have so much to offer Clark County, I've been offering it to Clark County and I have so much more to offer,” said Sanders. “We're going to continue to do so.”
