McHenry County Clerk Kathie Schultz revealed that about 26,060 people have cast early votes.
Shultz’ office is making coding changes, so she warns that the number is a preliminary one.
Early voting ended Saturday afternoon.
Since there are 203,225 registered voters in McHenry County, that means 12.8% of those eligible to cast ballots have done so.
