    I just voted at Gail Borden Library ’so-so’ turnout thus far…. Question, Is it okay to ask a very pregnant librarian if she’s overdue?!?! #Elgin2013

    It’s was pretty disorganized this morning at Gail Borden, hopefully that improved.

    The ballot was messed up. I live in Cook County, but my ballot gave me the opportunity to vote on a Kain county trustee race (or something that specifically mentioned it was for Kain county). When I told the workers there, they indicated that it wasn’t their job to notify anyone about it. Since I had an all day meeting beginning at 8:30, I wasn’t able to notify anyone myself.

      That happens all the time for Cook County Elgin residents. I didn’t vote for that but wonder if I did if the votes would even count.

    The results are in!

    It’s hard to believe that conservatives could outnumber liberals in the Elgin of today but in this municipal election they clearly turned out in much larger numbers.
