Additionally, over 3,000 mail ballots from suburban Cook County voters were returned today and will be counted in the next few days. That number will grow as ballots arrive. Mail ballots are eligible to be counted if they are postmarked by November 6 and received by November 20, according to state statute. There are also up to 4,500 provisional ballots, including all Election Day Registration voters, that, if validated, will be counted.

Here are a few highlights from Tuesday’s election:

  • As of 5:00 p.m. Monday, 865,282 ballots had been cast – the most in a Gubernatorial Election in at least 32 years.
  • Based on unofficial results, suburban Cook County turnout was about 54.5 percent.
  • Pre-Election Day voting was historically high for a Gubernatorial Election. In-person Early Voting in suburban Cook County – 271,156 – was higher than any Gubernatorial Election and second only to the 2016 Presidential Election.

All of the highlights are based on unofficial results. The Clerk's office has 21 days to certify the results. Results will be updated periodically as provisional and mail ballots are processed.
