It’s a symbolic vote since the State of Illinois has preemption over state gun laws such as the right to CCW. Still, it will send a message to more liberal areas of the state. From the Daily Chronicle:

Gun-rights advocates in at least nine mostly rural counties have placed measures on ballots asking voters if they want Illinois to allow its residents to carry concealed weapons. Illinois is the last U.S. state where it’s entirely illegal.

The measures are nonbinding, since no local law can override state law. But advocates hope the votes help build pressure on lawmakers to support so-called “concealed carry,” an issue that resonates in much of Illinois, and highlights the divide between Chicago’s powerful anti-gun forces and the rest of the state.
