In 2011, only 28 people voted and the highest number of votes received by a trustee was 19. There was no contest.

Although there are more registered voters in Algonquin Township Precinct 19 than Algonquin 7, more votes had been cast in Algonquin 7 that 19 as of five PM.

In 2013, 37 people went to the polls. The highest number of votes for a trustee was 31.

This year at about five in the afternoon, 48 votes had been put in the ballot box.

That does not count early voting and voting by mail, of course.

Children, judges and voters enjoy being able to vote in the most scenic room in Crystal Lake, the Main Beach House.

So, the turnout is much higher.

There is a contest this year, where there was not in the two previous election cycles, so that undoubtedly is the reason for the higher turnout.

What that means for individual candidates remains unknown.
