McHenry County Clerk Mary McClellan posted the results for twelve more precincts at about 3 AM.
That leaves 68 of 212 unaccounted for.
Let’s look at where that leaves the County races.
For County Board Chairman, Mike Walkup now leads by 1,405 votes. He has 51.53% of the vote.
The Recorder of Deeds results show Joe Tirio ahead of Joni smith by 1,654 votes.
Patrick Kenneally continues to run away with the State’s Attorney’s contest.
Judge James Cowlin continues to lead Demetri Tsilimigras by a wide margin.
For County Board, there are still seven precincts missing from the 38 in District 1.
In District 2, there was no change in position. Jeff Thorsen and John Reinert lead Cameron Hubbard.
District 3 still shows Mike Walkup retaining his District seat, so he will be on the Board even if he loses the race for the Chairmanship. Nick Provenzano is winning, too.
28 of 41 precincts are all that have reported. 13 are still missing, mainly for Nunda Township, one would presume.
In District 4, only 19 of 35 precincts have been counted. 16 are missing in action.
District 5 is finally picking up some votes.
Incumbent Mike Skala has a healthy lead, while Andy Snarski and Joe Calomino are battling for the second spot of the fall Republican ballot.
And, in District 6, incumbent Mary McCann has pulled into second place behind Jim Kearns.
She leads Ersel Schuster by three votes.
