Elections Board chairman announces plans to leave

Langdon Neal on Friday announced the city’s April 7 runoff election will be the last he oversees as chairman of the Chicago Board of Elections.

Neal’s resignation likely will not take effect until later this year to allow for a “transition” period, board spokesman Jim Allen told the Daily Whale. A third-generation Chicago lawyer, Neal was appointed to his post in 1997. He served on the State Board of Elections from 1985 to 1997, including three years as the state board’s chairman.
