There are two precincts who vote at the Crystal Lake Park Districts Main Beach House–Algonquin 7 and Algonquin 19.
Let’s start at the top of the ticket, knowing that the results do not include 86 absentee and early votes. Neither are a handful of votes cast electronically included.
So look at the results as dots on a trend line.
Four years ago Obama beat Romney by one vote in Algonquin 7.
Congressman Peter Roskam beat Democrat Leslie Coolidge by 147-
At the top of the ballot, you can see that the pension amendment to the State Constitution lost 125-121.
If Jim Roden were to take out his targeted opponent, McHenry County Board member Ken Koehler, he would have had to have done so in his home precinct. That did not happen, as you can see above.
And, finally, the reason for the headline.
The other precinct, Algonquin 19 also defeated the County Executive referendum, as you can see below:
And word from Algonquin 9 in Fox River Grove is that Jack Franks’ referendum failed 238-119. That’s less than in the two Crystal Lake precincts above, but still a 2-1 margin.
The County Clerk’s web site had no results for the referendum as of 8 PM.
