Delegates Pick the President, But Who Picks The Delegates?

There are just few more days of voting before the Illinois primary on Tuesday. 

Some names on the ballot, like the ones for the people running for President, U.S. Senate and Cook County State’s Attorney will be familiar to many voters. But there will also be a set of names the average voter probably won’t recognize: The delegates.
