CHICAGO (CBS) — If you think your one vote doesn’t matter, just take a look at some of this week’s election results.
WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports several of races from Tuesday remain undecided, with three or fewer votes separating candidates in a handful of them.
“Every vote counts, absolutely,” said Cook County Clerk David Orr, whose office oversees election proceedings in the suburbs. “You’ve got a race in Lincolnwood village trustee that is a one-vote difference. You’ve got another village trustee in Park Forest that is a one-vote difference. You’ve got a Ward 1 alderman in Countryside, there’s a two-vote difference. A Chicago Ridge for village trustee is three votes apart. And Hodgkins village trustee has one three votes apart.”
