There was a long count before the weighted votes of Algonquin Township Republican Precinct Committeemen were reconciled.
Election of party leaders is not one Precinct Committeeman, one vote.
Each elected Committeeman is allowed to cast a vote that equals the number of citizens who voted in the Republican Primary Election last month.
Two teams competed for the leadership posts.
Incumbent Township GOP Chairman Chris Yaeger of Algonquin ran with Peggy Pirovano of Cary for Vice Chairman, Christina Myers of Algonquin for Treasurer and Maureen Chambers-Huff of Lake in the Hills for Secretary.
McHenry County Vice GOP Chairman Andrew Gasser of Fox River Grove, stepping down from that post, ran against Yaeger.
Chris Covelli of Cary was his candidate for Vice Chairman. Jennifer Weinhammer of Cary ran for Treasurer and Scott Vetter of Crystal Lake contested for Secretary spot.
