Lake County Results Virtually Live on Election Night


WAUKEGAN, Illinois - County Clerk Willard Helander announced that North Chicago, Waukegan, and Waukegan Township voting sites will transmit election tallies for the February 26 Consolidated Primary Election virtually live to after polls close at 7 p.m. on election night.


Early voting, grace period registration voting, and voting by mail results are added to precinct tallies on election night after all Election Day precincts have reported. Web visitors should click their browser's refresh button after they enter the results page to ensure the most recent results are viewed.


Voters and interested parties are encouraged to become familiar with the election results page prior to Election Day by visiting and clicking on "Election Results." The Clerk's web site also offers an instructional video on navigating and customizing the view of election result summaries by race, as well as precinct level reporting. Web navigation assistance is not available on Election Day as all staff will be supporting voting sites.


Results are also available by calling the Clerk's office at 847.377.2410 after 8 p.m.


The February 26 Consolidated Primary in the cities of North Chicago and Waukegan as well as Waukegan Township is a primary for only Democratic candidates because no contested Republican candidates or nonpartisan public questions were certified for the election.
