Cook County is organized into townships except for the city of Chicago: in 1902, voters in Chicago chose to abolish the eight townships in the city.

There are 17 counties with no township government: Alexander, Calhoun, Edwards, Hardin, Johnson, Massac, Menard, Monroe, Morgan, Perry, Pope, Pulaski, Randolph, Scott, Union, Wabash, and Williamson. Each of those counties is instead divided into precincts.

Famous quotes containing the word forms:

    We find the most terrible form of atheism, not in the militant and passionate struggle against the idea of God himself, but in the practical atheism of everyday living, in indifference and torpor. We often encounter these forms of atheism among those who are formally Christians.
    Nicolai A. Berdyaev (1874–1948)

    Two forms move among the dead, high sleep
    Who by his highness quiets them, high peace
    Upon whose shoulders even the heavens rest,
    Two brothers. And a third form, she that says
    Good-by in the darkness, speaking quietly there,
    To those that cannot say good-by themselves.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
