Results are coming in

DuPage results are coming in. With 100% of precincts reporting, Tom Weisner has 47% of the vote, and Richard Irvin has 34% of the vote. Turnout is unsurprisingly low — just 1856 votes cast in the 26 DuPage precincts in Aurora (about 7% turnout).

Kane and Will County results are also starting to come in. With 41% of the precincts reporting, Tom Weisner is at 43% and Richard Irvin is at 38%. Turnout was stronger in Kane and Will County, but overall still pretty low — about 15% of registered voters cast a vote today.

Looks like Tom and Richard will be the two to go on to the general election in April. Congrats to both.

Update, 9:20pm: More Kane & Will results in, Weisner’s holding steady at 43% and Richard slipped a couple points (with Wyatt being the beneficiary). Tom’s to be congratulated on being the top vote getter, but he has to be a bit worried; he was the only Democrat running, while there were four Republicans vying for the slot. Richard not only beat Wyatt 2-1, he can probably count on most of Wyatt’s supporters coming into the fold for the general election in April. This is a horse race.
