WBBM reports the following about the alleged vote counting problems brought forward by McHenry County Democrats:
McHenry County Democratic Party Chairwoman Kristina Zahorik said the party notified the clerk’s office of the problem with some strange things happening at at least three polling places in Cary.
“We had reports of people going in and voting and on the election results the candidates were showing they had no votes which, of course, can’t happen,” Zahorik told the Northwest Herald. “I mean even if they voted for themselves, they’d have a vote.”
There was a Cary Library District contest with only a write-in candidate endorsed by Democrats in play.
In my library district election rsults article, i wrote,
There were no candidates for the two-year term, whose vacancy will be filled by appointment unless Democratic Party write-in candidate Janet Polep gains enough votes.
The results posted at 9:15 Tuesday night showed no indication of write-in votes:
I’m remembering from last elections that the number of write-in votes were indicated, but not by candidate name.
Ballots are being hand counted in the Count Clerk’s Office.
