As the election has less than three more hours for Illinois voters to cast ballots, Congressman Randy Hultgren’s campaign manager Joe Calomino is telling supporters of the low turnout and urging them to vote:
“It appears that voter turnout is well below average today. If you haven’t voted yet there’s still time.
“It is so important that we elect quality candidates to represent the GOP and our shared values leading into the 2012 General Election at every level of government from the White House to the Court House.
“The future of our communities and our nation rest in your hands…so please VOTE today and have your voices heard.
“Not sure where to vote?
“Joe Calomino, Campaign Manager
Hultgren for Congress”
Hultgren is running unopposed.

Turnout at Crystal Lake’s Main Beach House polling place seemed low to me.
In my Algonquin Township Precinct 7, 77 Republicans and 4 Democrats had voted by the time I showed up about 3:45.
In the other precinct that votes there, Algonquin 19, there were 57 Republicans and 7 Democrats.
Total votes two years ago were 114 for the GOP and 30 for the Democrats in Algonquin 7, while in Algonquin 19 there were 107 Republican votes and 36 Democrats. But those figures included early voting and absentee votes, which are not included in the 3:45 vote counts seen above.
