- a four-way race going on in District 3 (three incumbents on the ballot–Joe Gottemoller, Mike Walkup and Nick Provenzano)
- both County Board Chairman candidates–incumbent Joe Gottemoller and Mike Walkup–coming from District 3 and
- the Chairwoman of the Transportation Committee, Anna May Miller
also being on the ballot, one might think the election had something to do with the postponement.
