Some Election Highlights

  • No “Red Wave”!
  • Lisle Township’s Mental Health Board referendum won handily! Congratulations to all who worked so hard on this!
  • The “Workers’ Rights Amendment” has also apparently passed.
  • Representatives Foster, Casten, and Underwood all won re-election.
  • Senator Tammy Duckworth was re-elected.
  • Governor Pritzker and the entire statewide slate all won re-election.
  • Every election-denying secretary of state candidate (and most governor candidates at this point) lost. This is great news for the integrity of the next presidential election.
  • Democrats retain control of the U.S. Senate. Senator Raphael Warnock and Hershel Walker will compete in a runoff election.
